PESHAWAR, Pakistan - Islamist militants stormed a provincial government complex for agricultural research in northwest Pakistan on Friday, killing 12 people including students and wounding 35 others, police and rescue officials said.
The attackers reportedly exchanged fire with security forces at the Directorate of Agriculture Institute of Peshawar on Friday morning, the chief of police in the northwestern city, Tahir Khan said. The operation is ongoing.
Police officers said that five people were rushed to hospital with injuries.
The compound includes a hostel facility for diploma students and there were around 100 people there at the time of attack, police said.
A spokeswomen for two hospitals in the city said they had received a total of nine bodies and were treating some 38 injured, including several in critical condition.
