Islamic school closed for 'endangering children'
A private Islamic primary school in Vienna's Brigittenau district has been shut down as the city council believes its students' welfare was endangered, the Kurier newspaper reports.
This comes after a young girl was knocked over by a classmate and seriously bruised her forehead. The headmistress did not call an ambulance and only reported the incident to the police the following day - when the girl still had significant swelling on her head.
When she was challenged about this she said that protecting her pupils' parents is a priority for her - especially as many of them are originally from Chechnya and do not have health insurance.
