A pair of seventh-grade girls in New Jersey have been pulled from school after allegedly posting a video on YouTube in which they threatened to kill several classmates, authorities said.

The girls at PS 27 in Paterson posted the roughly 20-minute video naming 10 to 12 classmates they wanted to kill and stab, school officials said.

In the video, which has since been taken down from YouTube, one of the girls brags about being a good assassin and explains why she wishes harm on her classmates.

The mother of one of the named students said the incident started Tuesday afternoon during a classroom journal writing exercise. One of the girls wrote and read aloud the names of students she wanted to kill, though not within earshot of the teacher.
