Mexican teacher ties boy, 11, to chair for hours

A human rights watchdog says a Mexican teacher tied up a fifth-grader for hours in what his parents called revenge for their stance against a teacher's strike. Morelos state Human Rights Commission president Fausto Gutierrez says the 11-year-old boy was tied to a chair for half the school day, ostensibly for misbehaving. But Gutierrez says the child's parents believe the teacher was retaliating against them for joining a movement against the strike.
