Taliban Suspected of Attacking Pakistani School, Killing Principal

KARACHI, Pakistan—Suspected Pakistani Taliban killed a school principal and injured several students in the country's biggest city, Karachi, in an attack that highlighted the militants' spreading reach.

The gun and grenade assault on Saturday targeted the Nation, a small private school that taught children as young as 5 in Ittehad Town, an area of western Karachi that recently came under Taliban control.

Although Karachi, Pakistan's only major port, is hundreds of miles away from the militants' heartland along the Afghan border, the presence and activities of the militants in the city have mushroomed over the last year. Some areas of the city now are effectively run by the Taliban.
