Exam plea

RAJSHAHI, Bangladesh (Reuter) - Hundreds of university students demonstrated to demand that examinations be delayed until after the World Cup football championships in June.

'We cannot afford to miss watching the World Cup. Exams can wait,' the students chanted. Officials were 'puzzled' but did not rule out heeding the demands.
