Students sentenced over waiter attack

Two Geneva students who attacked a waiter on a college trip to Rome have been given 20-month suspended prison sentences.

The pair, aged 19 and 20, were sentenced by a court in Rome on Thursday. They will also have to pay a €400 (SFr532) fine.

A third student who is under 18 will be appearing before a court separately. All are students at the André-Chavanne business school.

The incident happened on Sunday night. The three students had been drinking and attacked the man as he was leaving his place of work in the centre of the city. He was pushed and fell to the ground, injuring his head. His wallet and cigarette lighter were stolen.

They were expected to return to Switzerland on Friday. The matter will be referred to the college's disciplinary board. and agencies
