Gunmen rob British school pupils on Africa trip

Gunmen forced a group of 16 British school pupils and staff from their vehicle during a roadside ambush on an expedition in Africa.

Money, cameras and mobile phones were stolen as the robbers rifled through their belongings during the hold-up in the Tabora region of Tanzania.

The 14 students, aged 15 to 18, and two staff members from the private Cranbrook School in Kent were "shaken" but uninjured following the robbery last month.

Headmaster John Weeds said, "We understand that the police have got to the bottom of who was responsible," as local reports suggest four men are due in court after admitting robbery.
