Several dozen girls and their teachers have taken to the streets in the Afghan capital, Kabul. They protest against the ban on education for girls older than 11 years.
According to the Taliban, there are not enough teachers and the conditions, such as dress codes for the girls, need to be further elaborated. The Taliban adhere to a very strict form of Islam, which places great restrictions on women and girls outside the home.
