A Philippine Catholic school is withholding the diplomas of six high school boys who uploaded Facebook photos that appear to show them kissing one another, an education official said on Friday, AP reported.
Department of Education officer Samuel Mergenio said the six boys told him they had taken prank photos to make it appear that their lips touched.
One of the boys uploaded the pictures on Facebook and mistakenly made them available to others, Mergenio said.
He said the school's chancellor informed the department Thursday that the boys will be allowed to participate in the graduation ceremonies but "the release of their diplomas will be delayed."
