IN BRIEF

 

Syed Hamid Hussein, a 34-year-old chemistry professor at Bacha Khan University in northwest Pakistan, died on January 20, 2016 when militants stormed the campus, killing 22 people and injuring 51.

 

CASE HISTORY

     

Hamid has been hailed as a hero by his students. As Zahoor Ahmed, a student of geology, told AFP that when he heard the first gunshots, Dr. Hamid told him not to leave the building. Ahmed continued to describe the following: “[Dr Hamid] was holding a pistol in his hand. Then I saw a bullet hit him. I saw two militants were firing. I ran inside and then managed to flee by jumping over the back wall.”
