Over 150 schoolgirls in Afghanistan’s capital Kabul fell sick after smelling gas and drinking water, and are now being examined for possible poisoning, hospital officials said on Wednesday (May 1).
While instances of suspected poisoning are sometimes found to be false alarms, there have been numerous substantiated cases of mass poisonings of schoolgirls by elements of Afghanistan’s ultra-conservative society that are opposed to female education.
Hospital officials said the girls appeared to become ill after smelling some kind of gas and drinking water at the Sultan Razia school in Kabul.
“We have received around 150 schoolgirls to the hospital; around ten of these girls are in critical condition and are under treatment,” said Doctor Amin, head of the Kabul hospital where the suspected poisoned victims were taken.
