WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The University of Oklahoma has expelled two students linked to a video showing members of a fraternity singing a song filled with racial epithets, the president of the school said in a statement.

The university's president, David Boren, said in a statement posted online that the two students were "identified as playing a leadership role in the singing of a racist chant" connected to a Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity event.
