Classes resume at Pennsylvania high school week after stabbings


Students at Pennsylvania's Franklin Regional High School returned to class Wednesday, one week after a 16-year-old boy stabbed 21 students and a security guard with a pair of kitchen knives.

Before classes began, students gathered at the football field to pray and offer support for each other. Well-wishers from a local church greeted students along the road, holding signs reading "Courage" and "It's a new day."

Alex Hribal has been accused in the attack. He has been charged as an adult with aggravated assault and attempted homicide.

Four students were still hospitalized as of Wednesday.
