Explosion at Pakistani madrassa kills 6 students, injures 4

The explosion occurred at the Maulvi Mohammad Yar madrassa in the town of Qilla Saifullah in Balochistan province, about 300 kilometres south-west of Islamabad, said Mohammed Farooq, a local police investigator.

He said four students were injured by the bomb, which he claimed was inside the bag of an Afghan refugee who had stayed at the school but left Monday morning before the explosion. The Islamabad-based DawnNews TV had earlier reported that six people were wounded.

"Last night an Afghan refugee came to the madrassa and asked for permission to spend a night there," Farooq said. "He left in the morning but forgot or intentionally left behind a bag which exploded when some students tried to search it."

Balochistan is a region that borders Afghanistan.
