A security guard at a church in a Christian colony in Peshawar foiled a major terror attack this morning; before being killed in a subsequent gun-battle. Four suicide bombers entered the colony, on the city’s Warsak Road, at 5.50am local time (12.50am GMT). The security guard, Samuel Masih, raised the alarm, alerting nearby police and army forces. He then challenged the terrorists and was killed as a result of gunfire.
