Kamran Maqbool | 6 years ago | Reply Such cowardice attacks cannot discourage the wiping-out campaign against the terrorist whose are taking the name of Islam but distorting the lovely face of the religion.
Sam | 6 years ago | Reply I thought these monsters are smart that's why they are never caught and always evade authorities since when they started dropping ID cards? This is really looking like a total incompetence at its best, our police can't do their jobs and always make things up.
