    Pakistan: Bacha Khan University reopens

    Jan 25, Islamabad: Pakistan’s University which was attacked by suspected militants has reopened on Monday. More than 20 people have been killed in the attack.

    Four gunmen opened fire on students and staff of the Bacha Khan University last Wednesday.

    Pakistani media said that classes would start on Monday with special prayers for the victims, and that other educational institutions in Charsadda, which closed in the wake of the assault, will also reopen.

    Vigils, and protests condemning the attack, were held in Charsadda, Peshawar and other places in Pakistan last week.

    The incident took place more than a year after a Taliban school massacre in nearby Peshawar, which prompted nationwide mourning and outrage.
