Cops: 5th-Graders Plotted to Bomb High School Assembly
Police say five New Jersey fifth-graders, including four girls, plotted to bomb a high school assembly.
The alleged plot was uncovered at an elementary school in Clifton, New Jersey, not far from New York City.
The children, ages 10 and 11, reportedly were targeting an assembly Wednesday at Clifton High School.
Arrests were made after teachers found written plans for making an explosive device out of cinnamon and vinegar.
The device was located, but did not contain explosive properties, police said.
A police spokesman said the device was meant to "cause damage" and that it was "not a prank."
The five were suspended from school and released by police to their parents. Prosecutors have not said if there will be any charges.
