Another arson attack targets Guyana girls’ dorm

AN arson attack partially destroyed a girls’ dormitory in a Guayanan village near the Brazilian border yesterday, less than a fortnight after a fire at another girls’ boarding school killed 19 children, police said. 

There were no reported casualties in the blaze in Karasabai, in the southwest of the country. The 19 residents, aged 11 to 16, were able to escape the fire caused by four young men who wanted revenge for having been chased away from the building, according to police who were called by the concierge at 2.30am.
