TTP faction behind Bacha Khan attack vows to target all schools across Pakistan

Karachi, Jan 22 (ANI): A faction of Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistani (TTP), that claimed responsibility for Bacha Khan University attack, has released a new video vowing to attack schools across the country, calling them “nurseries” for people who challenge Allah’s law.

According to The Express Tribune, the video, which spread rapidly on Facebook but was not released on official media accounts for the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistani (TTP), shows Khalifa Umar Mansoor, whose faction claimed responsibility for the attack on the university Wednesday.

Heavily armed gunmen attacked the Bacha Khan University in Charsadda, killing 21 people and injuring 30 others.

The attack was reminiscent of the deadly 2014 assault on the Army Public School in nearby Peshawar, which was also claimed by Mansoor’s faction. (ANI)
