QALAT, Afghanistan, Aug. 14 (Xinhua) -- A bomb blast organized by militants destroyed a primary school in Afghanistan's Zabul district with Qalat as its capital 340 km south of Kabul on Sunday, a local official said.
"Militants exploded an explosive device inside a school in Shahr-e-Safa district early Saturday and destroyed the building," district governor Abdul Samad Durani told Xinhua.
Since the attack happened early morning, no one was hurt in the blast, the official asserted.
The official, however, blamed the enemies of peace, a reference to the Taliban for organizing the blast.
Taliban militants who had outlawed modern education and girls school during their rule which collapsed in late 2001 are yet to claim responsibility.
More than 400 schools have been shut down due to security reasons in southern parts of Afghanistan where Taliban militants are active.
