Taliban suspected as 86 Afghan girls are hospitalised following THIRD school poisoning Mail Online hat tip wolf
At least 84 Afghan schoolgirls were admitted to a hospital today after the third apparent poison attack on a girls school in as many weeks, officials said.
The students were lining up outside their school in north-eastern Afghanistan on Tuesday morning when a strange odor filled the school yard.
The school's principal told how one schoolgirl collapsed.
'We took her inside and splashed water on her face,' said Mossena, who like many Afghans goes by one name.
Then other girls started passing out in the yard and they sent all the students home.
It was unclear if the incident was a deliberate attack on the school, though the Taliban and other conservative extremist groups in Afghanistan have been known to target schoolgirls in a bid to stop their education.
Mossena said she did not know what happened next because she collapsed and woke up in the main hospital in Muhmud Raqi, the capital of Kapisa province.
At least 98 patients were admitted from Aftab Bachi school, including the principal, 11 teachers and two cleaners, said Khalid Enayat, the hospital's deputy director.
He said about another 30 students were being monitored to see if they developed symptoms, although they were not admitted to the hospital.
