Bikers use water pistols to spray acid on girls


Fifteen schoolgirls sprayed with acid outside their school in Kandahar

UNIDENTIFIED men on motorcycles have sprayed acid on 15 schoolgirls in the southern province of Kandahar, an official says.

Two men used water pistols to spray the acid on the girls as they entered the Mawais Nika Girls School in the provincial capital on Wednesday morning, a spokesman for the Education Minsitry, Hamid Elmi, said.

Kandahari police rushed the girls to hospital, where three of them are in a serious condition, Elmi said.

Some of the girls had acid sprayed in their eyes. Police have arrested two men in connection with the incident.

"Security remains the biggest bar to education in southern Afghanistan," said an education ministry spokesman.
