Food poisoning hits Florina pupils on Crete trip

The pupils, who were on a 5-day school trip, were returning to Iraklio after spending the day in the western part of the island on Sunday, when a number of them displayed symptoms of gastroenteritis.

The students were expected to be released from hospital later on Monday.
