The arrests came as Canadians mourn a British Columbia teen who died by suicide last week after enduring years of internet sexual exploitation and torment by her peers.
Amanda Todd took her own life five weeks after she uploaded a video to YouTube describing years of bullying that drove her to drugs and alcohol.
Police in London, Ontario said that their probe revealed a student at London South Collegiate Institute had been the target of physical, emotional and cyber bullying.
The accused students - all female - have been released from custody on a promise to appear in court. No more details were immediately available.
