HAMBURG - A teargas attack inside a German secondary school on Friday left 55 children coughing and wheezing.

"I don't call that a schoolboy prank. The crime squad is investigating," said a police spokesman after the attack in the Ernst Barlach School in Wedel, just outside the port city of Hamburg.

Fire brigades mounted a major deployment after the irritant, possibly a personal-protection pepper spray, was released in the school vestibule. A Hamburg chemical-protection squad collected traces of the gas and a fluid found at the scene for investigation.
