Deadly assault on university on Pakistan university
Jan 20, Islamabad: At least 20 people have been killed and 50 others injured when a gunmen storm Charsadda university in northwest Pakistan on Wednesday.
Four suspected attackers were killed in a battle that lasted nearly three hours at Bacha Khan University in Charsadda. Troops continued to secure the campus, checking classrooms and dormitories, amid fears more bodies would be found.
There are conflicting reports about whether the Taliban militants carried out the assault. The group killed 130 students at a school in the city of Peshawar, 50km (30 miles) from Charsadda, in 2014.
About 3,000 students are enrolled at Bacha Khan but hundreds of visitors were also expected on Wednesday for a poetry event.
