After the ban on music:
Islamist militants al-Shabab have banned teachers using bells to signal the end of class in the town of Jowhar, 90km (56 miles) north of Mogadishu.
Al-Shabab said the bells sounded too much like Christian church bells.

Pretty soon, they'll ban schools altogether, after all in the cult of islam the belief is that everything you need to know is in the koran.

Hahaha... yes, of course. There is always the danger of having a disobedient teacher who would try to teach reality, whether it's according to the Q'uran or not. ;)
