Peshawar School Attack
Hafiz Saeed planning attacks against India: IB report. The IB report mentioned that two hotel lobbies in Delhi and some unspecified highway between Agra and Delhi are on their radar. The United Nations declared JuD a terrorist organisation and also individually designated Saeed as a terrorist in December 2008. Saeed also has a bounty of $10 million on his head. The attack began in the morning hours, with about half a dozen gunmen entering the school - and shooting at random. Students wearing their green school uniforms could be seen on Pakistani television, fleeing the area. Pakistani Taliban spokesman Mohammad Khurasani warned civilians to detach themselves from all military institutions. The Pakistani Taliban is claiming the attack was justified because the Pakistani army had long been killing innocent children and families of their fighters. Walls riddled with bullet holes, an auditorium floor covered in blood and a burnt out office. Military spokesman Major General Asim Bajwa said the school principal was inside her office when the attackers made their way into the administration building. He said she locked herself into the bathroom but was killed after a grenade was thrown through a vent and into the room. Maj Gen Bajwa said the attackers made their way into the main auditorium and started shooting randomly at the students, who had gathered for an event. Army commandos fought the Taliban throughout the day until the school was cleared and all the attackers were reported to have been killed, eight hours after the siege had started. The Pakistani Taliban, which is fighting to topple the government and set up an Islamic state, immediately claimed responsibility for the attack. "We selected the army's school for the attack because the government is targeting our families and females," said Taliban spokesman Muhammad Umar Khorasani. "We want them to feel the pain."
