QUETTA: Bombers on Thursday blew up two schools designated as polling stations for general election next week, police said.
A boys’ primary school and a middle school were bombed at the village of Chattar in Naseerabad district in Balochistan.
“The school buildings were designated as polling stations for the May 11 general election and we think that they were targeted for this reason,” district police chief Tahir Allauddin told AFP.
He said three rooms of the middle school, 350 kilometres southeast of Quetta, were destroyed and both rooms of the primary school were demolished.
Another police officer confirmed the incident and said nobody had yet claimed responsibility.
