Teenagers mauled in bear attack

A brown bear with her cub attacked teenagers on a survival-skills course in Alaska, badly injuring two in the group.

The teenagers were among seven students on a 30-day back-country course when the attack occurred on Saturday, 120 miles north of Anchorage.

Two 17-year-old boys were the worst injured with bear bites, officials said. They are said to be in serious condition at an Anchorage hospital. AP
