Nuns beaten by Hindu radicals in Catholic school

A mob of some 200 Hindu radicals demolished a Catholic school in Tamil Nadu and stripped some of the nuns who teach there, attempting to strangle them with their rosaries. No part of the school building was spared, as the activists devastated classrooms, smashed desks and windows, and wreaked havoc on the auditorium. Four of the nuns and two other school staff members were hospitalized for injuries after the attack. This violence was sparked by the suicide of a 15-year-old girl, disappointed by her bad school results.
