Houston, TX - A Houston teacher is suspended after teasing a Muslim student about Osama Bin Laden's death in front of the entire class.

The algebra teacher reportedly said to the ninth grader, "I bet you're grieving."

And when the student asked why, the teacher reportedly said he heard about her uncle's death.

The Muslim student was so upset that witnesses say she began crying.

School officials have placed the teacher on administrative leave pending an investigation.
