Madrasas open for girls in Afghanistan

Traditional religious schools open for females with some concerned about the form of Islam being taught.

Traditional religious schools in Afghanistan, known as madrasas, have opened up to girls for the first time since the Taliban infamously banned education for women.

Male teachers sit in boxes to separate themselves from their female students, who say they attend voluntarily, in addition their secular education.

While some have welcomed the move, others have concerns about the type of Islam being taught in the schools.
