5 Students Sickened at NJ Islamic School

Emergency crews are on the scene at an Islamic school in central New Jersey after a teacher and five students said they were feeling ill.      

South Brunswick Police Sgt. Jim Ryan says officials have evacuated Noor-Ul-Iman School on Route 1 as a precaution.      

Ryan says one student fainted and the others said they had difficulty breathing.      
Emergency officials are evaluating the situation at the one-story brick building.      
The school's website says its mission is to "provide an excellent academic and Islamic education'' to students in grades K to 12.
