KAMLOOPS, B.C. - Two students have been suspended and more students may face discipline after a schoolyard fight in Kamloops, B.C., was posted on YouTube.

The video, which was later taken down, shows two teenaged boys punching, kicking and grappling with each other while surrounded by other students, some of them urging on the combatants and many taking pictures and video.

District 73 Assistant Superintendent Karl de Bruijn (broo-in) says the teens who were fighting outside Westsyde Secondary School have been suspended indefinitely.

He says the video has allowed officials to identify 10 more students and school officials will met with them and their parents before imposing some kind of punishment.

Bruijn says the teens involved were from several area high schools.

It's not clear what sparked the fight. (CFJC)
