Three Afghans beheaded, school torched in suspected ISIS attack

(AhlulBayt News Agency) - Unidentified gunmen beheaded three men and torched a boys’ school in Nangarhar province in eastern Afghanistan late on Saturday, in an attack officials blamed on ISIS terrorists.

“They brutally beheaded three attendants and set fire to the school building,” Mohammad Asif Shinwari, spokesman for the education department said, adding that the administrative offices and the school library were completely burnt.

So far no group has claimed responsibility for the attack, which came after warnings from ISIS last month of attacks on schools in Nangarhar, on the border with Pakistan, where the militants have established their main stronghold.

In a statement, the provincial governor blamed the incident on ISIS, which has conducted a series of brutal attacks in the province and other areas, regularly beheading victims they accuse of cooperating with the government.
