Police in Nepal say small bombs have exploded outside two schools in the capital, but no injuries and only minor damage were reported. Unexploded bombs were found at five other schools in the city.

Police official Bikram Singh Thapa says the explosions took place Tuesday morning outside the gates of two schools for students from grades 1 to 10. The unexploded devices found in front of five other schools in Kathmandu were either detonated or removed.

Thapa says police arrested two people suspected of being behind the blasts. Police found pamphlets near the blast sites and attached to the unexploded devices from a little-known group demanding free education for all Nepalese children.

Thapa says no injuries were reported, and that the explosions caused minor damage to the schools’ gates.
