Gunmen on Tuesday killed two schoolteachers in a northwestern Pakistani town with a history of sectarian violence, police said.

The double murder came in the town of Hangu, around 60 kilometres southwest of Peshawar, the main city of the northwest, as the teachers were going to the government high school where they worked.

“Gunmen on motorcycles opened fire at two teachers of government high school. One died on the spot, while the other died in hospital,” district police chief Iftikhar Ahmed said.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack.
