Balakot school reopens with graves in yard

From Dawn:

PESHAWAR, Nov 10: Their eyes full with tears, children turned up on Thursday at the Balakot Government High School where 85 of their fellows lie buried in mass graves in the middle of the courtyard.

The students, who came to the school, formally reopened by Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz saw a row of graves of children who died when the school building collapsed on October 8.

They looked at the graves with awe and grief and later went to their classrooms. They also played games for a brief period during the recess.

Five more schools will be reopened in Mansehra soon, the contractor of the school told this reporter.
