“There was a lot of shooting … We hid under a bed. It was very terrifying,” a young woman at the camp told British Sky television.No group has clearly claimed responsibility.Leader of main opposition party declared it a terror attack. Some analysts are pointing their fingers towards Al Qaeda-linked or inspired groups.
Such attacks have taken place across Europe which have claimed several innocent lives. European countries are thinking about their immigration policies about Muslims that can create hardship for peaceful and civilized Muslims .
It must be pointed out here that peaceful moderate Muslims themselves especially Pakistanis are the worst victims of this terrorism. They need help of the world to get the whole humanity out of this menace.
