MINNEAPOLIS Public Schools officials say they are "deeply disturbed by an incident of racial intolerance" in which four students hung a dark-skinned baby doll by its neck with a piece of string at school last week.

The act was captured on Washburn High School surveillance cameras, but also documented by the students themselves. Images were then posted to social media sites.

Washburn Principal Carol Markham-Cousins notified parents of the incident n a letter to parents Wednesday, noting that she took "immediate action."

The four students have been disciplined, though school officials have declined to release specific details. WCCO reports that one student has been expelled. - Huffington Post
