Another suicide bomb in northwest Pakistan

A suicide bomber exploded outside a government school in the Shia-dominated Ibrahimzai area of Hangu district, killing at least 11 people. Although no one has claimed responsibility, it is known that the Taliban has targeted hundreds of schools in recent years as part of a campaign against secular education in the northwest. Several countries advise their citizens to avoid all travel in this part of Pakistan.
