Nearly 300 Muslim students have reportedly attacked a Christian boys’ school in Pakistan in response to the Charlie Hebdo caricatures that mocked the prophet Muhammad. The students were armed with iron bars and sticks and four people were injured in the attack; there were no fatalities. 


The Christian Post reports that the attack occurred at Panel High School in Bannu. Muslim students scaled the walls and attacked the Christians inside the school. 


Nasir Saeed, director of the NGO Center for Legal Aid Assistance & Settlement said, "It is very sad that Islamic radicals attack Pakistani Christians because of Charlie Hebdo. Christians condemn the blasphemous cartoons. It is a shame that even after 67 years since the birth of Pakistan, Christians have not yet been considered Pakistani citizens, but are seen as 'Western allies.”


The boys’ school has been shut down for two days following the attack and administrators are considering stricter security measures for the safety of students.
