SWABI: Suspected militants blew up a government-run school in the Kaddi village of Swabi district on Wednesday.

Amjad Ali, an official of Swabi police, said that girls primary school no. 2 was blown up at around 7:45pm. “The boundary wall and three classrooms were destroyed due to the explosion,” he said.

Ali said that two bombs had been planted inside the building, adding that one had detonated while the other, which weighed 10 kilogrammes, was defused by the police. “The bombs were planted in tin canisters,” Ali added.

The official said that the blast had completely destroyed the building and only one out of the four classrooms remained. He added that no loss of life had been reported and the watchman was in his house at the time of the explosion.

Dr Anwar, who lives near the school, told The Express Tribune that a huge explosion had shook the surrounding area.

Investigations are underway, but no FIR has been registered so far.


g | 11 years ago | Reply Shahbaz Khan, you are delusional. There is no international conspiracy to impoverish Pakistan. Pakistan is responsible for Pakistan and you are ignoring that Pakistan needs to fix Pakistan. Do you think people around the world get together and say, "Now, those Pakistanis are so clever, how are we going to stop that economic, military and cultural powerhouse from taking over the world?"?

Oops! Seems like "bad Taliban" are picking up the new tactics from the good ones.
