Photo of the Day

FILE - In this Aug. 31, 2010 file photo, a Quranic student sleeps with his begging bowl covering his face in the unfinished first floor of a building which serves as both classroom and living space for the dozens of students at his Quranic school, in the Fadia 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.
