SHAFAQNA- Around 60 Afghan girls were hospitalised after being poisoned at their school in northern Afghanistan, police said on Monday (05 June 2023).

The poisoning, which targeted a girls’ school in the Afghan province of Sar-e Pol, comes after intense scrutiny of girls’ education in the war-torn nation since the Taliban took over and barred most teenage female students .

“Some unknown people entered a girls’ school in Sancharak District .. and poisoned the classes, when the girls come to classes they got poisoned,” said Den Mohammad Nazari, Sar-e-Pol’s Police Spokesperson, without elaborating on which substance was used or who was thought to be behind the incident.
