Head of Koranic School Who Chained Students In Senegal Appears In Court

SENEGAL


For chaining kids up, a court in Senegal has handed down a two-year prison sentence to the head of a Koranic school.
A court in Senegal has handed down a two-year suspended prison sentence to the head of a Koranic school for chaining up children.

Four parents and the metalworker who made the chains also received suspended sentences.

They were all arrested last month after a photo shared on social media showed several students with chains around their feet.

But the case has split opinion in the Muslim-majority nation.

Many thousands of children attend Koranic schools, and some parents have said they didn't know chaining a child was illegal.
