Afghanistan's president is again inviting the Taliban to join peace talks and pleading with them to stop attacking and burning schools in the war-torn country.
Hamid Karzai marked the first working day following the Afghan New Year holidays with an occasionally emotional speech at Amani High School in Kabul on Wednesday. He says education is key to rebuilding Afghan society.
Karzai also warned the Taliban that the Afghans are not scared of insurgent guns and bombs, and asked them to stop burning down schools.
The Afghan government and its international partners have in recent weeks been avidly pursuing peace talks with the Taliban, but it is still unclear whether the rebels are willing to engage in such a process.
