84 Afghan girls hospitalized in apparent poisoning




MUHMUD RAQI, Afghanistan (AP) — At least 84 Afghan schoolgirls were admitted to a hospital Tuesday for headaches and vomiting in the third apparent poison attack on a girls school in as many weeks, officials and doctors said.

The students were lining up outside their school in northeastern Afghanistan on Tuesday morning when a strange odor filled the school yard, and one girl collapsed, said the school's principal, who was herself in a hospital bed gasping for breath as she described the event.

"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.

    i cannot tell you how ANGRY this makes me.

    How dare someone do that to girls who want an education...who want to learn and who's family apparently want them to learn as well, since they were permitted to attend school.

    i'm furious and feel helpless to help them.

    Where are the women's rights groups on these issues? Silent!

    So, the Taliban is showing their hand in having chemical weapons? They think that using them on girls in schools will fly under the media radar? That no one will even consider it a WMD attack because it's directed at girls? Just think how many girls will be attacked globally if the whole world is claimed and occupied for Islam under the global jihad.
