Three Guilford College (North Carolina) football players are charged in connection with the incident that happened early Saturday outside a dormitory on campus. Friends and classmates of the Palestinian students spoke on their behalf, describing an unprovoked attack and injuries that include a broken jaw, a broken nose and concussions. According to court documents, up to 15 members of the football team were involved in the assault, during which the Palestinian students were beaten with fists, feet and brass knuckles while being subjected to racial slurs and called "terrorists."
