The militants of the terrorist organization the Taliban blew up a girls school in Pakistan. There were no casualties as the school was empty, but the building suffered great damage.
The incident occurred in the village Tiarza the North-Western Pakistani province of South Waziristan. The explosion destroyed three classes out of five.
The representative of the Taliban said the news Agency France Presse that the school was controlled by the Pakistani military, and that the group opposes education for girls, therefore, destroyed the building.
The terrorists took hostage the security guards and workers employed on the construction of the school, but later they let them go.
In another area, the military killed at least five terrorists.
