BAMYAN CITY (PAN): At least 17 schoolgirls were brought to hospital for possible poisoning in central Bamyan province on Wednesday, a day after 75 schoolgirls fell sick after a suspected poisonous gas attack in northern Faryab province, officials said.

The Bamyan Girls’ High School students started vomiting and fell unconscious after smelling gas at their classrooms in the morning, said public health director, Dr. Rehana, who said the reason for their illness was being examined.  She said an investigation team had been sent to the school to know how it happened.
