Baloch Students Targeted in Quetta by LEJ while Pakistani Forces continue "Loot and Burn" in Mastung

The Express Tribune - Quetta violence: Bomb attack on bus kills five students
Dawn.com - Quetta Hazara town bombing: Victims buried under strict security
An LEJ attack on a bus in Quetta on Monday July 1st killed 5 and wounded over 70 Hazara students.  Last Thurdsay in the  Killi Haji Taj Sariab area of the capital a teacher was shot.  On June 15th LEJ attacked a busload of female Baloch university students.  As with other recent terrorist attacks, the LEJ seems to choose targets which conveniently coincide with the Pakistani agenda in Balochistan.  The education of the Baloch people has always been intentionally neglected as a means of control.  Pakistani occupational forces rely on fear to control the Baloch people.  Fear is overcome through knowledge, therefore to maintain their method of control, the Baloch people have been denied their most basic right to education.
