“Three schools blown up in Orakzai Agency,” from Dawn, April 29:
PESHAWAR: Three schools were blown up by militants in the Mamozai area of upper Orakzai Agency on Thursday.
The attacks were the latest in a slew of militant violence. On Wednesday, suspected militants attacked a checkpoint in Beizot. Forces retaliated and killed five suspected militants and injured several others.
Five suspected militants were also arrested in Mishit-Mela and Ferozekhel.
It has been almost four weeks since the Orakzai operation was launched in the agency, in which troops claim to have killed over 400 militants so far.
Security forces also claim to have consolidated their positions in most parts of the lower Orakzai and now claim to be advancing towards the central part of the agency.
In the Khyber Agency at least five militants have been killed and 18 others have been arrested including two commanders of Lashkar-e-Islam in Bara Tehsil.
