Scouts Pose As Terrorists, "Kidnap" Kate Middleton

A British Scout troop is being criticized for having 11 to 15-year-olds pretend to be terrorists abducting Kate Middleton as part of an exercise to teach the 300 children to read maps. After the girl playing Kate had been absconded with, an older boy playing Prince William led another group of Scouts on a hunt for clues over 12 miles. It's unclear why troop leaders chose to forgo the traditional pirate/treasure map theme, especially since half the kids probably have a Captain Jack Sparrow costume already.
