July 5 (Bloomberg) — Thirty ”hardcore” militants are preventing students at the Red Mosque in Pakistan’s capital, Islamabad, from surrendering amid a siege of the mosque by security forces, the government said.
The militants ”are using women and children as shields,” Javed Iqbal Cheema, a spokesman for the Interior Ministry, told reporters in Islamabad today. A total of 1,146 students have surrendered since yesterday, he said. At least 16 people have been killed in gun battles between students and police.
