Palestine septuagenarian shows her class

Return to school by 70-something West Bank resident has turned students' amusement to admiration.

    Al Jazeera's "Still Going Strong" series focuses on an elderly woman in the occupied West Bank who is determined to get an education, and who is going about it in a rather unusual way.

    Now aged somewhere in her 70s, nobody knows her exact age, Arifeh Malaysheh's arrival in the schoolyard was at first the source of much amusement.

    Al Jazeera's Paul Brennan reports from Jaba.
