File this one under Foreign AIDS

Pupils turn tables on red light teachers

A group of Swedish teachers are in trouble after they were filmed by pupils going off with prostitutes while on a school trip.

The school trip had been arranged as a "friendship" mission so that the youngsters, aged between 16 and 18, could build links with the people of Kenya.

But they were so outraged at their teachers' behaviour that they followed them and filmed them in the red light district as they talked with prostitutes and then disappeared into a brothel.

The kids acted after complaints from locals who had invited them to the community in Mombassa.
I guess that beats sitting around singing Kumbaya. Hey, it was a "friendship" mission about "building links". What could be friendlier? No word on the actual "link building," but presumably it was satisfactory to all parties.
