Afghanistan school poisoning

Afghan schoolgirls lie in beds in a hospital in Kabul on August 28, 2010, as they receive treatment for suspected poisoning at their school. Several schoolgirls, teachers and schoolboys fell ill and were taken to hospital after a suspected gas poisoning at the school in the Afghan capital, the second during the last four days in a country where during the Taliban regime education for women was forbidden.
