Meanwhile, suspected militants blew up a primary school in Adezai on the suburbs of Peshawar early on Monday, police said.

An official of Matani police station told Dawn that terrorists planted two improvised explosive devices at the main pillars of the building and detonated them through remote control at about 1:30am.
