KHOST CITY: Suspected militants last night blew up two schools with powerful explosives in Nadir Shahkot district of southeastern Khost province, education officials said Thursday.

Provincial education director Mosa Majroh told Pajhwok Afghan News on Thursday that some unidentified miscreants last night entered the schools and detonated powerful explosives inside the schools' buildings, destroying the buildings badly.

More than 600 students of both the gender have been studying in these schools, Majroh said.
