No Class 9 Anymore at Peshawar’s Army Public School, Just One Survivor

No Class 9 Anymore at Peshawar’s Army Public School, Just One Survivor
The entire Class 9 of Peshawar’s Army Public School was wiped out in Tuesday’s terror attack. Only one student, 15-year-old Dawood Ibrahim, survived the massacre; his alarm did not work in the morning.

Dawood had gone to a wedding the night before, and overslept on Tuesday. He lived to see his friends’ funerals.

132 children were killed in eight hours as nine Taliban gunmen stormed through the school firing indiscriminately. Many of the students were lined up and shot at close range. “It was fate. No one from his class survived; every single one of them was killed,” Dawood’s older brother Sufyan Ibrahim was quoted as saying by The Express Tribune of Pakistan.  After attending the funeral of six close friends, Dawood has gone quiet, according to his family.

“He is in judo and is a tough child but he is showing no emotion at all right now. He just attended funerals the entire day,” Sufyan said.
