Authorities have begun firearms training for women teachers in Pakistan's northwestern city of Peshawar. The instructions are part of the measures the government is taking to secure educational institutions following a Taliban massacre that killed more than 150 students and teachers in an army-run school in the city on December 16. The nine women teachers of Peshawar's Frontier College considered knowing how to handle pistols and Kalashnikov assault rifle (AK-47) a necessary skill in their current uncertain environment.
