Gunmen in suicide vests attack Pakistani University, killing at least 30

Gunmen raided Bacha Khan, a university in Charsadda, northwest Pakistan, at 9:30 a.m. local time, firing at staff and students — who were preparing for a poetry recital — and detonating explosives, killing at least 30 people and injuring dozens more. The same terrorist organization behind 2014′s Peshawar school attack took credit for today’s events.
