Teen arsons torch bus in Lublin

Two high school students in Lublin, southeastern Poland, torched a bus while intoxicated.

For attempting to take the life of the other bus passengers, the students face up to ten years in prison.

The eighteen-year-olds were returning home from school on the national bus carrier PKS after having taken their practice-baccalaureate exams. They were seated at the rear of the bus when they set fire to the seats. The driver of the bus immediately stopped the vehicle and put out the fire.

Passengers on board did not allow the arsonists to escape.

One of the teens had more than one per mil in their system.
