Illinois district's board expels 2 students over bus attack

A school board in Belleville, Ill., voted unanimously Monday to expel two students involved in an attack on a school bus last week. The students have been charged with felonies in the attack, which was caught by a security camera and widely circulated on the Internet. Police originally said the attack appeared to be racially motivated but now consider it to be a case of bullying. The students who were expelled are black; the victim is white.
