Actually the culprits were Sharia supremacists who oppose the education of women. But everyone knows that those supremacists pose no threat to anyone, and that the real threat comes from those who dare to call attention to their deeds, and to their ideological motivation.
“Pakistan: Seven charity workers shot dead,” from the BBC, January 1 (thanks to David):
Seven charity workers, six of them women, have been shot dead in north-west Pakistan, police say.
The women, some of them teachers, were attacked near a health and education community centre. A male colleague died with them. All were Pakistani citizens.
Their vehicle came under gunfire near the centre run by Pakistani charity Ujala, or Light.
The incident happened in the Swabi district close to a road connecting Peshawar to the eastern city of Lahore.
No-one at the charity, which works in the education sector, was immediately available for comment.
No group has claimed responsibility for the attack although militants in the conservative Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province oppose female education and have attacked female students and their schools….
