An Egyptian teacher forced his little school boys to eat animal fodder to punish them for not doing their homework, prompting a court to sentence him for one year in jail.
The students told their parents that the teacher forced them to eat fodder after threatening to beat them up because they did not do their homework.
Newspapers in the most populous Arab country said the families of the students filed a law suit against the teacher in the primary school in the northeastern town of Sohaj.
The court sentenced him to one year in prison and fined him 5,000 pounds (Dh3,000), the papers added.
