Levies sources said two armed militants riding on a motorcycle hurled a hand-grenade at girls high school in Killi Pir Alizai area of district Killa Abdullah. The blast smashed the glasses of school.

"Fortunately, the girls were inside their classes at the time of attack, " Zamarak Achakzai, the parliamentary leader of Awami National Party (ANP) who belongs to the same village told DawnNews via telephone.

"We strongly condemn this terror act and demand the arrest of culprits behind the attack," Achakzai said.

The assailants sped away on their motorcycle after the attack.
