peshawar - The Pakistani Taliban attacked Friday an agricultural school in the city of Peshawar in northwestern Pakistan. The attackers were dressed in women's clothing and entered the campus after they killed a guard. They killed at least nine people and wounded 35 before they were killed by security forces themselves, reported police officers and two hospitals in the area.
A Taliban spokesperson demanded the responsibility. In a message, spokesman Mohammad Khorasani said that the agricultural school was a cover for the military intelligence service ISI.
In December 2014, the Taliban attacked a military-led school in Peshawar. By that action, 134 children were killed.
The Pakistani Taliban are trying to overthrow the government and introduce a strict Islamic regime.
