Gun attack at Quetta school injures four students


QUETTA: Four school children were injured after unidentified men opened fire outside a school in the Kili Shabo area on Wednesday.

According to police, assailants riding motorcycles opened fire at the gate of the school, injuring the students.

A hospital spokesperson said, “The school children, aged between nine and 12 years, are in stable condition.”

In 2017, the Human Rights Watch in its report stated that attacks by the Taliban and other militant groups disrupted the education of hundreds of thousands of children, particularly girls, in Pakistan.

The 71-page report, “Dreams Turned into Nightmares: Attacks on Students, Teachers, and Schools in Pakistan,” based on 48 interviews with teachers, students, parents, and school administrators in the Pakistani provinces of Punjab, Sindh, and KP, urged the Pakistan government to take measures to make schools safe for students.
