CHEATING STUDENT SPARKS TERROR ALERT
Some funny news from the region; A student sparked a terror alert in Bulgaria after he 'borrowed' a walkie talkie set from his secret agent father to cheat in exams.
Georghe Dimitrov, 21, made the mistake of using the tiny device in the middle of a top security alert when government agents were out in force for President Bush's visit. The agents working undercover with similar devices suddenly found their lines blocked as a stream of technical data flooded into their earpieces.
The source of the calls was quickly traced and armed cops together with US agents stormed Sofia's Medical University. They went from class to class until they found the cheating student copying down the data sent by a friend in the school toilets.
The cheat had been sitting an exam in physiology but ended up being dragged from the school in handcuffs and was then locked up for 24 hours while police investigated how he came to have the device. He was released when they accepted he was not part of a terrorist cell trying to block communications.
MD: Too bad for him he was caught, he has been charged with using a radio frequency without a licence and he was also told he had failed his exam
