Pakistan university massacre: 30 dead

Gunmen stormed the Bacha Khan University in Pakistan in an assault that echoed a horrifying Taliban massacre on a nearby army-run school and previous attacks against girls’ education, notably the failed assassination attempt of Malala Yusufzai in 2012 in the same province.

It is also believed the school may have been targeted because it is named after Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan a towering secular figure in Pakistani politics and ally of Mahatma Gandhi.

As militants stalked the campus, executing targets one by one, assistant chemistry professor Syed Hamid Husain, 32, ordered his pupils to stay inside as he confronted the attackers.
