Three American soldiers were killed and two others injured today in a bomb attack that marked the first fatal Taliban ambush on the US military in Pakistan.
Dozens of teenage girls were caught up in the blast outside their secondary school in Lower Dir, in the country’s north-west. Three girls were killed along with one paramilitary force member.
The father of one wounded girl likened the scene to “doomsday”.
A Taliban spokesman claimed responsibility for the attack. “We will continue such attacks on Americans,” Azam Tariq told Reuters.
