Islamabad, Pakistan (CNN)Militants raided a university in northwest Pakistan on Wednesday, timing their attack to a ceremony at the school to ensure maximum casualties.
After security forces combed the campus block by block after the massacre, Mehmood Khan, provincial home minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, said 19 civilians were killed, along with four terrorists. He expects the number of civilian deaths to increase.

"There was heavy fog in the area when armed men entered ... and started firing at the security guards, students and teachers" at Bacha Khan University in Charsadda, regional police chief Saeed Wazir said.
Eyewitnesses told local media the gunmen chanted "Allahu Akbar" — or "God is greatest" — as they launched the attack in classrooms and dormitories.
Shaukat Yousafzai, a lawmaker of the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI), told NBC News that 20 people had been killed by the attackers, who scaled the walls around the campus. Some students and faculty were also taken hostage, he said.“Every day that they don’t find something is good for me.“ Billie Dunn
