Gunmen attack agriculture institute in Pakistan, killing 12

At least 8 dead in Taliban attack on training school

The KP police said that all terrorists were neutralised after a successful clearance operation by the security forces. At least 37 people were injured in total, sources said.

A heavy contingent of police, Frontier Constabulary (FC) and army surrounded the campus before launching the operation.

The army and local police who were summoned to the scene killed all the attackers, who arrived at the Agricultural Training Institute on Friday by rickshaw, the military's press wing said. Intermittent gunfire and explosions were heard from inside the premises for about two hours.

Mohammad Khorasani, a spokesman for the militant organisation, said they had targeted a safe house of the military's Inter-Services Intelligence agency.

He said six students, a security guard and two civilians were killed in the attack. Later, on January 20, 2016, 21 students and staff members of Bacha Khan University in Charsadda were killed by terrorists.

The attack, which is ongoing, reportedly injured 12 people so far.

Police said the attack began at around 08:40 am (0340 GMT) when three burqa-clad attackers stormed the compound in the north-western city. He said the operation had been completed and the building was being cleared by security officials.

The TTP, in a statement said that three of its combatants carried out the attack.

At least 13 people were injured during the gun battle between the terrorists and security forces, including eight students, three army soldiers, one policeman and one security guard.

Pakistani volunteers rescue a student after the attack.

Both police and military officials said the attackers had been coordinating with handlers based in Afghanistan.

A comparatively small number of students and others were present in the typically crowded complex at the time of the attack because Friday is a holiday - the day when Muslims celebrate the birthday of the prophet Muhammad.
