At least 20 people are dead after armed gunmen stormed a police training academy and opened fire. The incident took place in western Pakistan, in a city called Quetta. At least five people walked into the Balochistan Police College with assault rifles and, so far, only two of the gunmen have been located.
Troops entering the building opened fire on the gunmen, killing two. The other three are still at large. Hundreds of trainees were evacuated from the building as the Frontier Army took over the building.
Balochistan’s Home Minister Mir Sarfaraz Ahmed Bugti said this to the media:
“Our security forces have the capability to combat such attacks and threats.”
No terrorist group has yet taken responsibility for the attack. Just two months ago, law firms and hospitals in Quetta were attacked by terrorists, leaving 88 people dead.
