Just another day at school in glorious multicultural Cool Britannia. From The Scotsman, with thanks to Cindy:
Police are investigating allegations that a physics teacher warned wayward pupils that he knew how to make a parcel bomb and put it on their school bus.
The comments are being investigated after complaints from parents that their children had been left terrified led to the school calling in police.
The comments were allegedly made by Mazin Albarq to a class of 13 and 14-year-olds at the 1,200-pupil St Bede's RC School and Sixth Form College in Lanchester, County Durham.
Mr Albarq, of Darlington, County Durham, is said to have told a group of pupils who were not paying attention that he was from Bethlehem and knew how to make a parcel bomb to put on their school bus.
