A group of overseas students have been the victims of a street attack by an Edinburgh gang.
The "unprovoked" incident happened outside the Millennium Centre, on Muirhouse Medway.
A dozen foreign exchange students were confronted by a gang of 15-20 local youths, males and females, aged nine to 18.
Two of the students were assaulted and robbed and another two students received minor injuries.
