School blown up by IGNORANT Taliban

The number of destroyed schools rose to 64 in Khyber Agency on Friday when another government-run school was blown up by suspected militants at the Torkham border, official and tribal sources said.

The sources said unidentified people had planted explosives in the Government Primary School at Bacha Mina, the border village in Pakistan’s Khyber Agency that went off at 8:40 pm. Three rooms and a veranda were destroyed by the blast while the boundary wall suffered minor damage, the sources said.

It was the only government school built at the Torkham border in the 1980s after the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. At the school 95 percent children were from the Afghan refugees families residing in the border town for the last four decades.
