Militants raided a university in northwest Pakistan on Wednesday, timing their attack to a ceremony at the school to ensure maximum casualties. Chris Schauble reports from the newsroom for the KTLA 5 Morning News on Jan. 20, 2016.

The Pakistani Taliban has claimed responsibility for an attack Wednesday at a university campus in the northwestern section of the country that killed at least 22 people and wounded scores, reports The New York Times.

The attack at Bacha Khan University in Charsadda, “was just 25 miles from a school in Peshawar where the Pakistani Taliban killed 145 people, most of them children, in 2014,” the report says. It was one of the group’s boldest strikes “in a long insurgency” against Pakistani officials that singled out educational institutions.

Victims included students, a senior faculty member, and four guards, Fakhr-i-Alam, a senior government official, told the news outlet.

Via The Times:

Two years earlier, the group shot Malala Yousafzai, the teenage activist for girls’ rights and future Nobel Peace Prize laureate.

The Taliban have been weakened recently in Pakistan after the military launched an offensive in their main haven of North Waziristan, but the attack and a suicide bombing on Tuesday that killed 11 people together showed that they were still a dangerous force.

[…]

Security forces killed the attackers before they could detonate suicide vests, said Saeed Wazir, the Charsadda police chief.

Thirty people also died in September after members of the Taliban attacked a Pakistani Air Force base near Peshawar.
