#AceWorldNews says a blast rocked a primary school in Libya’s second city Benghazi during playtime on Wednesday, wounding six children, AFP reported.
It was caused by an explosive device thrown over the exterior wall of the school as the children were playing, according to Fadia al-Barghathi, spokeswoman for Benghazi’s Al-Jala hospital.
The injuries of the children “range between light and moderate,” she said.
A security official described the force of the explosion as “weak.” Witnesses saw an individual throw an explosive device over the school wall during recess, he said.
#AceWorldNews says a 16-year-old boy turned himself into police after a boy and girl were shot in a high school gym in north Philadelphia on Friday afternoon. Police are currently seeking another teenager in connection with the shooting, and another 15-year old who was initially taken in for questioning was later released by police. The victims, two 15-year-old’s, were both shot in the arm in Delaware Valley Charter High School.
The boy shot in the incident has been discharged from the hospital, while the boy remains in the hospital in stable condition. No motive for the shooting has yet been established. It is the second shooting to take place in a US school this week.
