Pakistani Taliban have blown up five girls’ schools in the town of Mingora in northwest Pakistan. A government official said that teachers are afraid to come to work: “I try to convince them but they’re scared. They doubt the government’s ability to protect them.” The Taliban believe that education for girls is un-Islamic.
