A Vermont college student who removed American flags set up to commemorate the Sept. 11 attacks has been suspended for a year.
The college said in an Oct. 11 news release one of the people was a student who acknowledged her participation. Another was a Canadian political activist who was invited to campus by the student. The others weren't known.
The college's community judicial board found the student, whose name wasn't released, responsible for violating policies of conduct and respect.
