More than 100 schoolgirls in northeastern Afghanistan are in hospital suffering from suspected poisoning.

        The health director of Takhar province said the girls fell ill shortly after drinking water at their school.
        An education official in Kabul said preliminary investigations suggested the water had been poisoned.
        A local official in Takhar suggested that people opposed to education for girls were responsible.
        Similar events have been reported before, but no conclusive evidence of poisoning has been found.
        The official said 40 girls were treated and then discharged but 100 others including female teachers have been kept in hospital, after complaining of severe nausea, headaches and dizziness.
        The water has been sent to a laboratory for analysis, and the official said he had asked for a full inquiry.
        A spokesman for the education directorate in Takhar said the victims are aged from 14 to 30.
        He said it appeared that "narrow-minded people" opposed to education for girls were behind the incident.

This has nothing to do with "tribal" clashes. It has to do with religion,fanatics and the role women play in this religion/culture.

Did the Anglos poison the water?
Diane Abbot (British MP): Anglos love playing divide and rule
David Cameron (British PM): Anglos caused most of the world's problems!

this is alarming. water filtration on a poisoned well is nearly useless i wonder if the well can be saved. if it can not then the school will need to be moved. only to happen again?  
i wonder about the supposed attributes of a ''man'' that can make war on women and children especially little girls  . i think that that ''man'' has nothing to offer a women so they are of no use to ''him''. i think his little brother swells only for his little brother.
