Students at a high school in Arizona were investigated last week after some pupils shared on Snapchat an image of eight people lying on the ground in the shape of a swastika.

The school district governing Paradise Valley High School in Phoenix said in a statement on Thursday that the high school would investigate and students would be disciplined. But they added that they could not provide more details in accordance with privacy laws.

An elementary school and the surrounding neighborhood in the Paradise Valley area were vandalized with swastikas last year.
