Read Time:19 Second

The Taliban have announced the closure of universities to women in Afghanistan.

According to BBC News it is expected to take effect immediately.

One Kabul University student told the BBC she had been crying since she heard the news.

After the Taliban takeover last year, universities introduced gender segregated classrooms and entrances.

Female students could only be taught by women professors or old men.
