Herat: Gunmen Set Fire to Girls’ School

Unknown armed men set fire to a girls’ school in Afghanistan’s western Herat province on Monday night

The torching took place in the border town Islam Qala of Herat, a town which is the official port of entry from the neighboring town Taybad in Iran.

No one was harmed in the incident, but Tahari said much of the school, along with office supplies and books, were burned.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack and the motives are not clear, officials said.

It comes as threats against schools seem to be increasing, with poisoning of school students a frequent occurrence in the last three months.
