Armed men have set on fire a school in the Taleqan city of northern Takhar province, an official said.

Armed men have set on fire a high school named Abu Osman Taleqani, located in the provincial capital at around 3:30 on Thursday morning, Jawad Hijri, a provincial spokesperson told Khaama Press.

The school burnt today was a famous and old school in the city with around 3,000 students, Hijri added.

Hijri added that upon the arrival of the fire brigade, unfortunately, most parts of the school along with the documents were damaged and burnt.

The police department has started their investigation to find the motive behind this incident, he said.

No individual or group has so far claimed the responsibility.

This incident is not the first to happen in Afghanistan, many other schools were damaged or burnt by the government oppositions, especially the Taliban in the past years.
