Pakistani Taliban kill 4 boys, wound 6

The boys were Shiite while the Talibans are Sunni.

The students were going to school in Atmankhel town of Orakzai district when the militants opened fire, killing four boys and wounding six others, local administration official Asmatullah Khan told AFP.

“It appears to be a sectarian attack as the slain students belonged to the minority Shiite sect of Islam,” he said. “The attackers were Taliban.”

Residents said the dead students were all younger than 16, but were not able to give the exact ages of the victims.

It’s just another attack of their ongoing campaign against schools, in which they have burned buildings, while their Afghan colleges have also thrown acid in girls’ faces.
