Brussels, 6 June 2023
The EU regrets the horrible news of poisonings of more than 60 girls at their school in northern Afghanistan.
This is a heinous crime that needs to be followed up by the de facto authorities, as per their obligations under international law to protect the population. We wish all affected a swift recovery.
Right to education is the human right of all children, everywhere. Schools need to be safe places for all children.
