Mastermind of APS & Bacha Khan University attacks dead

Pakistan hails new Afghan border fence to curb militancy

The militant, known as Umar Mansoor, claimed responsibility for the attack on the school located in capital city Peshawar of Pakistan's northwest Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province in 2014, and later another attack at Bacha Khan University in 2016, which left 22 people killed.

The Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) on Wednesday named a successor for militant commander Umar Mansoor, the mastermind of the Army Public School attack, along with a formal confirmation that he was dead.

The Mansour-led faction of the TTP, the Tariq Gidar Group (TGG), had claimed responsibility for the attack on the school in Peshawar, in which more than 150 people were killed, a lot of them children.

Pakistan has seen a dramatic improvement in security in the years since, though militant groups such as the TTP retain the ability to carry out spectacular attacks across the country.

President Donald Trump and U.S. officials have accused Pakistan of not preventing militant groups' attacks in Afghanistan from within its territory.

The slain mastermind was reported to be killed in 2016 as well but this is the first time that the militant group has confirmed his death.

TTP Spokesperson Muhammad Khorasani, in an email sent to journalists, said that Khalifa Usman Mansoor Hafizullah will replace Umar Mansoor as the faction's commander in Darra Adam Khel and Peshawar.
