Four students injured in firing outside Quetta school

Four schoolchildren were injured as assailants fired outside a private school in Kili Shabo area on Wednesday.
Police said assailants on motorcycles fired at the gate of the school injuring four students.
The injured students were shifted to Civil Hospital, Quetta immediately after the incident, police said. A hospital spokesperson said the schoolchildren aged between nine to 12 years were being treated and were out of danger.
Investigations into the incident are under way, police added.
In 2017, the Human Rights Watch in its report stated that attacks by the Taliban and other militant groups disrupted the education of hundreds of thousands of children, particularly girls, in Pakistan.
The 71-page report, “Dreams Turned into Nightmares: Attacks on Students, Teachers, and Schools in Pakistan,” based on 48 interviews with teachers, students, parents, and school administrators in the Pakistani provinces of Punjab, Sindh, and KP, urged the Pakistan government to take measures to make schools safe for students.
