Islamabad – Radical Islamists have blown up 20 video shops in two cities of Pakistan’s North Western Frontier Province (NWFP), while a bomb exploded outside a girls’ school in the same region, local media reported on Friday.
Several small bombs exploded in the semi-tribal cities of Charsadda and Tangi on Thursday night, but caused no casualties, the Aaj news channel reported.
The explosions occurred days after the owners of the businesses received warnings from Taliban-styled radical Islamists to cease trading, calling the sale and renting of movies and music videos un-Islamic.
In another incident, a bomb exploded at the main entrance of a girls’ school in the small NWFP town of Gujrat, damaging the main gate, the Geo news channel reported.
