Militants torch schools

Militants set fire to two primary schools in Kurram on Tuesday as authorities extended winter holidays amid threats of attacks, officials said. The incident comes two weeks after the massacre of 150 people at an army-run school in Peshawar. Tuesday's pre-dawn arson attacks took place in two villages in the Kurram tribal district. Amjad Ali Khan, the district's top administrative official, told AFP the attackers had doused furniture with petrol before setting it ablaze.

All the wooden benches and desks along with school records were destroyed and buildings were damaged, Khan said. No group immediately claimed responsibility but Khan blamed "militants" for the latest attacks.
