PESHAWAR, Pakistan: A suicide bomber blew himself up outside a government school in northwest Pakistan on Monday, killing a teenage boy, officials said. The incident happened in the Shiite-dominated Ibrahimzai area of Hangu district and has not yet been claimed by any group. “A suicide bomber blew himself up near the main gate of a government boys school, killing a young student aged 14,” district police chief Iftikhar Ahmad told Agence France-Presse. He said the boy sustained serious injuries and was rushed to hospital where he died. A local intelligence official also confirmed the incident. The Taliban have blown up hundreds of schools, especially for girls, as part of a campaign against secular education in northwest Pakistan in recent years.
