Kenya school closed after sexual harassment complaints

Another high school in Kenya has been closed indefinitely after hundreds of girls walked out of the institution to protest against alleged sexual harassment by a male teacher.

Local media reports that more than 700 students of Maasai Girls High School, located 68 miles (110 km) southwest of the capital, Nairobi, marched out of the school early yesterday morning.

The students allege a male teacher had asked for sexual favours and attempted to assault one of them.

On Monday, Moi Girls High School in the capital re-opened a week after it was closed after a student claimed she had been raped.
