Another girls’ school destroyed in Kalam

MINGORA: Security forces on Tuesday launched a search operation after miscreants blew up a second girls’ school in Kalam late on Monday.

Officials blamed suspected terrorists for torching of the school in Peshmaal. Another school had been destroyed last weekend. The terrorists had destroyed more than 402 schools in the district before they were expelled in a military operation last year. Analysts see two possible reasons behind renewed anti-school violence: first, that the terrorists are expressing their anger at the presence of Americans, who are doing relief work, in Kalam. Second, it may be an attempt by the flood-battered locals to draw the world’s attention to their plight.
