FILE- In this Aug. 31, 2010 file photo, A Quranic student whose legs are bowed from polio, right, is helped across a busy street by a fellow student, as they beg to meet the daily quota imposed by their Quranic teacher in the Parcelles Assainies neighborhood of Dakar, Senegal. Senegal's president Macky Sall said Monday, March 4, 2013, that the government will close all Islamic schools that do not meet basic safety standards, after nine children in a Quranic school died in a fire Sunday. Senegal has an estimated tens of thousands of young Quranic students, known as 'talibes,' who live in rudimentary conditions and spend their days begging on Senegal's streets for their Quranic teachers.
