The Wall Street Journal: Scores killed in attack on Pakistan police academy

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — Militants stormed a police academy in southwestern Pakistan late Monday, killing 59 and injuring more than 100, government officials said.

Three militants entered the police training college on the outskirts of the city of Quetta, capital of the Balochistan province, at around 11 p.m. local time, officials said. Provincial home minister Sarfaraz Bugti said the attackers first killed a sentry who was guarding the perimeter, and then entered the dormitories of the academy, where hundreds of cadets were present.

The attack sparked a major security operation, involving police commandos and paramilitary forces, that continued for almost four hours, government and security officials said.
