2011: Two suicide bombers attack a paramilitary force academy in the Charsadda District of Pakistan, killing 98 and wounding 140. The Islamist militant group Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan would officially claim responsibility for the bombing, saying the attack was in revenge for Osama bin Laden's death earlier in the month.
