BURLINGTON (AP) — Four Burlington children, ages 12 and 13, have been charged for an assault on another student that was recorded and posted on the Internet. The Hawk Eye says they’ve been charged with serious assault and disorderly conduct. The video showed the students surrounding, taunting and punching the other child, a boy.

Burlington Superintendent Jane Evans says the attackers have been suspended from school.
