ISLAMABAD: Militants (terrorists) blew up a girls’ high school in the troubled
attending classes and to join madrassas.
The nine-room school building at Akhurwal was completely destroyed by the
explosion late on Monday night. The school’s administration had earlier
received letters warning it to close the institution.
Handbills purportedly distributed by local militants two days ago warned
girls to stop going to schools and to join seminaries.
Pakistani security forces had recently conducted a major operation against
pro-Taliban militants in the area.
However, reports said that the militants had resurfaced and increased their
activities despite the presence of hundreds of army and paramilitary troops
in the area.
Over the past three day, militants have destroyed three security check posts
and a government school building.
