Islamabad: Pro-Taliban militants blew up a
girls` primary school and a health centre in the restive
Mohmand tribal region in northwest Pakistan on Tuesday, officials
said.

The militants laid explosive materials around the
girls` primary school and a rural health centre in Khushal
Kale area of Mohmand Agency and blew them up.

Local residents said three explosions had rocked the
area. There were no reports of casualties.

The Taliban, who are opposed to the education of
girls, have blown up hundreds of girls` schools across
Pakistan`s volatile tribal belt over the past two years.
