Virginia Tech honours killed students

Virginia Tech honours killed students
Virginia Tech University has awarded degrees to the victims of last month's campus shooting. During the ceremony, nine graduate students were given posthumous master's degrees or doctorates.

On April 16 a South Korean student killed 33 people before shooting himself.

President George W. Bush has issued a statement praising “the compassion and resilient spirit” of the Virginia Tech community.
