Girls’ schoolteacher shot dead
 
 
 




PESHAWAR  - A girls’ school teacher was killed in a drive-by shooting on Tuesday in a Khyber tribal district on the Afghan border, officials said.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack, but the militants are particularly opposed to girls’ education in the northwest, where they have bombed hundreds of schools in recent years. Shahnaz Nazli, 41, was shot dead in Shahkas, near the town of Jamrud. She was on her way to the government girls’ primary school in Shahkas when gunmen fired at her about 200 metres from the school and fled, local government official Asmatullah Wazir told AFP.
“The teacher was killed after unknown gunmen on a motorbike shot her and fled,” Wazir said. Local education officer Mohammad Jadoon Khan confirmed the shooting and death of the teacher.
