    Teachers and students were astounded

    Have I made any mistakes?

    Teachers and students were astounded when their caretaker was arrested and charged with a war crime. Later, they would learn that the quiet man who had worked with dedication and was kind to everyone in the school had brutally tortured civilians and in a prison camp during the war in Bosnia.
