Girls School run by Catholic Church blown up in Swat


Peshawar; October 8, 2008. The local Taliban blew up the Convent Girl's School Sangota run by (Sri Lankan) Apostolic Carmelite Sisters at Swat yesterday. According to media, the school building was damaged completely.

A loss of life was saved because the Sisters had closed the school and vacated the convent a few days ago due to threats. In the late evening, some local militants entered the school and asked the workers at duty to leave the building, as they were about to destroy the school. It was bombed later. Last year also, the Convent administration was threatened by the local Taliban to shutdown the school. The Pakistani Taliban have so far attacked more than 150 girls schools using explosives in the North West Frontier Province in the past two years.
