Taliban backtrack on resuming girls´ high schools in Afghanistan
The Taliban have reversed a decision to allow Afghan girls to return to high schools, saying a decision is still to be made on the uniforms they must wear, reported British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC).
Schools were set to open nationwide after months of restrictions since the Taliban seized power in August.
But the education ministry abruptly announced girls' secondary schools would stay shut, causing confusion, said BBC.
Some girls were in tears as parents and students reacted with anger and disappointment to the last-minute move.
Many had earlier talked of how happy and excited they were to be back in the classroom, the report added.
