I was surrounded by the remains of what once was a beautiful school. On the street a teenage girl and her parents stod hugging each other as they cried together.

Even though the school was open for both girls and boys many girls were scared of going to school. Sadly in Afghanistan it is not rare that events like this happen with schools that teach girls.

This resulted in only a few girls at school when the attack struck. But attacks like these cause even more female students to stay home.
