Over 200 Muslim students, angered by caricatures of Muhammad in a Parisian publication, attacked a Christian boys’ school in Pakistan and demanded its closure, according to Agence France-Presse.

The attack took place in Bannu, a city in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, a frontier province that borders Afghanistan. Four students at the boys’ school were injured, and windows were smashed.

A district police officer “confirmed the incident but said it was not thought to be an anti-Christian attack,” Agence France-Presse reported.
