MOHMAND AGENCY – Pakistani militants destroyed two more government-run schools late November 7 in Mohmand Agency, officials said.

Agency Education Officer Said Muhammad told Central Asia Online that the government boys' school in the Garahi area of Pandyali Tehsil and a government school in the Yasin Kor area in Shah Baig, Haleemzai Tehsil, were severely damaged in the attacks.

The militants planted home-made explosive devices at the schools. The damage at both was so severe that the educational activities cannot be carried out, he said.

Miscreants have destroyed or damaged more than 111 schools during the past three to four years, he said.
