Education ministry says that the teachers will be dealt with accordingly after they made their students take off their clothes in class to search for stolen money

The spokesman for Egypt's education ministry has called an incident in which 120 female students were forced by two teachers to strip off their clothes as "sad and immoral," the daily Arabic newspaper Al-Shorouk reported on Sunday.

During a phone interview with host Sherif Amer on TV channel MBC Masr, ministry spokesman Ahmed Helmy said that the two female teachers had made the girls take off their clothes so that they could search for LE40 that had been stolen.

The spokesman said that the governor of the Upper Egyptian city of Beni Suef, where the incident took place, had decided to suspend the teachers from work and launch an investigation into the incident.

"The necessary measures will be taken against them, pending the results of the investigation," Helmy said.
