School attendance and access here has been greatly affected by militancy, terrorism, and sectarianism. Most recently there was a suicide bomb attempt on a school in the Hangu District of Pakistan this month, thwarted by a brave Pakistani student who was killed in the process. In June of 2013, a bomb killed 14 people at a Shiite school. In 2012, Pakistani education activist Malala Yousafzai was shot by the Taliban. In November 2013, there was a drone strike on a madrasah (seminary), which the US alleged was serving as a refuge for terrorists.
