ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) _ Police in a small Alaska town near
Fairbanks are holding a half-dozen seventh-graders. Authorities say
they had an elaborate plan to kill classmates and teachers.
According to the police chief, the kids felt picked on by other
students and disliked some of the staff members. These students are
around 13 years old. North Pole, Alaska is about 14 miles southeast
In Riverton, Kansas, five teens, ages 16 to 18, should find out
this week whether the attorney general will charge them in what
authorities believe was a Columbine-style scheme to kill people.
Some students say the suspects were worried that they would get in
trouble over the alleged plot, claiming it was really all a joke.
