Pakistan arrests five over deadly attack on Bacha Khan university


The attack on a university in north-west Pakistan on Wednesday was masterminded by a Taliban leader in Afghanistan, the Pakistan army said on Saturday.

General Asim Bajwa said the militants who stormed Bacha Khan university in Charsadda, killing at least 20 people, were trained in Afghanistan and crossed into Pakistan.

Five suspects were arrested in Pakistan on Saturday on charges of aiding the militants who carried out the killings.
