JALALABAD (Pajhwok): A number of gunmen torched textbooks and other scholastic materials at a historic school in the Momand Dara district of eastern Nangarhar province, officials said on Monday.

Mohammad Asif Shinwari, educationinfo-icon department spokesman, told Pajhwok Afghan News four gunmen torched the warehouse at the Aimal Khan High School on Sunday night.

The arsonists tied up hands of two watchmen before setting the school warehouse on fire, he said. All books and other important materials of the school were burnt.

Meanwhile, the governor’s spokesman, Attaullah Khogyani, said an investigation was underway. The district police chief and other officials have been directed to probe the incident.

Hazrat Wali, a student of the school, said the warehouse was completely torched. No militant group has so far claimed responsibility for the attack.
