Panic spread among girls attending midterm exams at an elementary school in Port Said after the janitor discovered a snake inside the school.
An official source at the education department said the administration decided to transfer the students to another location after a school worker found a snake crawling up a water pipe at Port Fouad School.
The reptile was between 1m and 1.5m long, the source said, adding that it might be a dangerous species.
The same source revealed that the local council of Port Fouad has sent specialized experts to hunt down the snake, which has not yet been found.
