Pakistan closes all schools after blasts hit college

Pakistani soldiers stand guard near the blast site in Islamabad, capital of Pakistan, Oct. 20, 2009.

The four provincial governments of Pakistan have ordered the closure of government and private educational institutions across the country following the twin blasts against the International Islamic University Islamabad (IIUI), in which six people, including three female students, were killed and 29 others injured.

The Sindh Education Department announced the closure of all government and private schools in the province until Oct. 25 (Sunday), adding universities would remain closed on Oct. 21 (Wednesday) only.

The North West Frontier Province (NWFP) and Balochistan governments have also announced the closure of all educational institutions until Sunday. Educational institutions in the federal capital had already been shut down until Oct. 25.

In Punjab, a private TV channel reported all government and private education institutions would remain closed until further orders. Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah told the channel all education institutions would reopen once the security situation improved.

The decision to shut down schools and colleges nationwide was prompted by the twin suicide bombings at the IIUI on Tuesday. The first blast targeted the cafeteria adjacent to a girls' hostel, while the second one targeted the Sharia and Law Department building.
