Militants destroy another girls' school in Pakistan's Hangu district
Three classrooms and the boundary wall of a government girls' middle school was destroyed after a bomb planted by unidentified militants exploded in Togh Sarai, Hangu district.
"The girls school was razed to ground as most parts of the building were destroyed," The Express Tribune quoted SHO Saddar Zakeem Khan, as saying.
An official of the bomb disposal squad said that about four kilograms of explosives were planted in a canister along the wall.
This is the fourth school destroyed in the district. The first school - a primary school for boys - was destroyed by militants on June 21, 2011. On November 20 this year, a girls' middle school was destroyed in Kotiki, while a boys' middle school on the outskirts of the city was destroyed on November 27.
Despite claims of police officials to launch a search operation on the outskirts of Hangu, no action has yet been taken to nab the perpetrators.
