Taliban announce new rules for female students

Afghan universities will be segregated by gender, and a new dress code will be introduced, the Taliban has said.
Higher Education Minister Abdul Baqi Haqqani indicated women would be allowed to study, but not alongside men.
He also announced a review of the subjects students would be taught.
Women and girls were banned from schools and universities under Taliban rule between 1996 and 2001.
The Taliban have said they will not prevent women from being educated or having jobs. But since they seized control on 15 August, they have asked all women, except those in the public health sector, to stay away from work, until the security situation improves.
