Securing Peshawar’s Schools

In the northwestern Pakistani city of Peshawar, security forces are conducting exercises to train soldiers, students, and teachers on how to respond to a militant attack.

The drills are part of government efforts to secure schools and campuses after some 20 people were killed in a Taliban attack on Bacha Khan University last month. The attack came a year after the same Taliban factions claimed credit for killing more than 140 students and teachers at Peshawar's Army Public School.
