CHARSADDA, PAKISTAN – NewsFix is spanning the globe, unfortunately, to round up the latest news from the world of terror.
Dateline: Charsadda, Pakistan, where a Taliban terrorist squad attacked a university, killing at least 20 people, mostly students, some of them shot in the head execution style.

A Persian general in 1743 killed about 150 monks at the monastery when they refused to convert to Islam.
Dateline: Raqqa, Syria, de facto capital of Islamic State, where we now know the face of the ISIS thug known as Jihadi John. ISIS published his photo in its monthly online magazine.
Mohammed Emwazi was born in Kuwait and raised in London. A US drone strike turned him into dust.
Dateline: Kent, OH, home of Kent State University where national guardsmen killed college students demonstrating against the Vietnam War in 1970.
Today, Kent State is home to history professor Julio Pino, apparently under investigation by the FBI.
A student newspaper broke the story after federal agents interviewed the paper’s editor as part of their investigation.
Pino says he’s used words like jihad until victory in some of his writings, but denies that he’s trying to recruit students for ISIS.
He says he’s just exercising free speech, which is something ISIS does not allow.
