UNESCO Condemns Placement of Explosives at Kathmandu Schools.
PDF File Size: 87 KB | Download   
UNESCO strongly condemns the planting of multiple Improvised Explosive Devices (IED) and suspicious objects near school buildings around the Kathmandu Valley, out of which three exploded in the early morning of 20 September 2016.
“It is unacceptable that schools are becoming targets of any form of violence, keeping children from attaining education, which is an essential human right,”said Christian Manhart, UNESCO Representative to Nepal. “Education is among the most crucial tools to create and maintain peace in a society. The incidents,no matter if the devices actually exploded or not, impose an atmosphere of anxiety and fear on children, parents and teachers. We can only imagine the severe impacts that such traumatizing experience will likely have on children’s school attendance and performance,” he added.
