Taliban blow up girls` school in northwest Pakistan
Peshawar: Taliban militants on Monday blew up a state-run girls` school in the lawless Khyber tribal region of northwest Pakistan though there were no reports of casualties.
The primary school at Khogakhel village in Khyber Agency was empty when the militants detonated an improvised explosive device planted on its outer wall, officials said.
The blast, triggered by remote control, severely damaged the building.
Six schools and two healthcare facilities were blown up by militants during the past year in Landikotal, a town in Khyber Agency near the Afghan border.
