Bihar state authorities say at least 27 other students were hospitalized after eating a meal that included rice and lentils Tuesday at a primary school in Masrakh, about 90 kilometers north of Patna, the state capital. Ten of those children are in critical condition.
Angry demonstrators staged a protest following the children's deaths.

**Kerry Pushes Israeli-Palestinian Peace in Jordan Talks**
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry meets with Arab League foreign ministers Wednesday in Jordan as he continues to push for a revival of Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations.
The talks are also expected to include the rising tensions in Egypt and deteriorating conditions in Syria.
Those discussions follow Kerry's meeting late Tuesday with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, in which the two men discussed the peace process, efforts to boost the Palestinian economy and other developments in the Middle East.
Kerry also held talks Monday in Amman with Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh, and is expected to meet with Jordan's King Abdullah during his trip.
Kerry has visited the region six times since becoming U.S. secretary of state earlier this year, and has made jump-starting the Israeli-Palestinian negotiations one of his top priorities.
