School building constructed in Jalalabad - 10-01-2010, 10:39 PM
Having 20 classrooms, a 17-room administrative block and other rooms, the building was constructed over 1.5 acre at a cost of $230,000, provided by the Canadian government.
The deputy director of education, Syed Essa Sadat, said the school had the capacity to accommodate 2000 students.
Meanwhile, the Laghman governor's spokesman, Muhammad Gul Rahman, said work on a 30-kilometre road -- linking Mehtarlam with Badpuckh -- had been launched.

The men of Kábul and Khilj also went home; and whenever they were questioned about the Musulmáns of the Kohistán (the mountains), and how matters stood there, they said, "Don't call it Kohistán, but Afghánistán; for there is nothing there but Afgháns and disturbances." Thus it is clear that for this reason the people of the country call their home in their own language Afghánistán, and themselves Afgháns. The people of India call them Patán; but the reason for this is not known. But it occurs to me, that when, under the rule of Muhammadan sovereigns, Musulmáns first came to the city of Patná, and dwelt there, the people of India (for that reason) called them Patáns—but God knows!
