Gunmen attacked a police academy in the city of Quetta in western Pakistan on Oct. 24, killing 59 people, most of them police cadets, and injuring more than 100. The gunmen stormed the campus when most of the students were asleep. Some students were held hostage for more than five hours before the gunmen were killed by security forces. At least two of the attackers were also equipped with suicide bombs.


The Islamist militant group Daesh (ISIL) claimed responsibility for the attack, but local officials suspect Lashkar e-Jhangvi (LeJ), a militant group based in Pakistan.
