    Six masked gunmen have taken more than fifty students and teachers, including a British child, hostage in a school in Cambodia.

    Reports have said the men stormed the international school in Siem Reap province, near the tourist site of Angkor Wat, and demanded money, weapons and a getaway car.

    Police say armed attackers stormed the building at about 0930 (0230 GMT).

    A government spokesman said up to 70 hostages were initially detained, but the gunmen had set many free.

    Deputy military commander Cheang Sokhon said: "Military police in Siem Reap have surrounded the school but the group is hiding behind the students and teachers."

    This is so sad and frightening. We send children to school to learn, and expect them to be safe. What pleasure do people like this get from doing these awful things [​IMG]
