And earlier this March, the Taliban ordered the closure of secondary schools for girls in Afghanistan again, after they opened for a short time.
“Yes, that is true,” spokesman Inamullah Semenkani told AFP briefly, without giving further details, confirming information that the girls had been asked to return to their homes.
The girls were happy to be back in school for the first time since the hard-line movement seized power last August, but they closed their books, picked up their things and left in tears.
The international community has long emphasized the right of everyone to education, in the negotiations on aid to Afghanistan and recognition of the Taliban regime, and several countries and organizations have proposed paying teachers’ salaries to improve the educational system.
