Kabul schools get two off days

Kabul schools get two off days

Nov 15, 2011 - 20:23

KABUL (PAN): All private and public schools in the capital Kabul would remain closed for two days ---Wednesday and Thursday --- in connection with the traditional Loya Jirga beginning tomorrow, an official said on Tuesday.

The decision comes after the government announced two public holidays for the jirga, education ministry spokesman Abdul Sabur Ghufrani said.

Kabul city traffic department head, Brig. Gen. Noor-ud-Din Hamdard on Monday said all roads leading to the site of the four-day assembly would remained closed until the event was concluded due to security concerns.

Ghufrani said if the government announced Saturday as off day, then the schools would remain closed that day also.
