All-girl Afghan robotics team granted US visas
All-girl Afghan robotics team that travelled hundreds of kilometres through the conflict-torn country to get visas for a US competition has finally been granted travel permission by the US government.
Their applications were denied twice before their story’s happy ending. Thanks to an intervention by the US president himself, the girls will now receive the visas.
Al Jazeera’s Jennifer Glasse reports from Kabul.
