Schools in Afghanistan safer places to be….July 13, 2011

Despite the attack on the dome at Zohra’s school site, in general there seems to be fewer attacks on schools this year, according to the New York Times (See Filling Classes With Learning, Not Fears).   The Times also repeated a report that we have heard elsewhere: Mullah Muhammad Omar, one of the primary spiritual leaders of the Taliban, has banned attacks on schools and on children.  If this is true (which it seems no one can truly document), it could mean that children in Afghanistan would have the opportunity to attend school in safety.  Yay!
