Last week we, heard a report from the Swat valley in Pakistan where the Taliban have banned girl’s schools.
Earlier this month they threatened to begin destroying schools if they weren’t closed by January 15.
Most schools followed the orders, but to reinforce their point the Taliban have bombed 10 schools in the last week.
Fortunately no one was killed or injured in the blasts, but the audacity of the attacks and the government’s apparent helplessness has deeply traumatized the valley.
Mudassar Shah returned to Swat this week for Asia Calling and he filed this report.
