Peshawar Agricultural Training Institute attack streamed live for Afghan handlers: report
Soon after the valiant soldiers and police personnel of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa police winded up the operation, in which 11 people were left dead, pictures of suicide bombers popped up, showing them in a pool of blood.
One of the pictures showed an electronic gadget installed beneath his shoulder.
Initially, the exact nature of gadget could not be ascertained, however, Twitter user F. Jeffery has claimed that the device was actually a mobile phone.
Okay so I've confirmed that this was indeed a cellphone that was strategically mounted on the terrorist's shoulder to film and live-transmit the attack. https://t.co/Mp7c1QLeZI

Not only were the terrorists carrying a phone (satellite or cellular), but allegedly, they were also streaming the live footage of the attack, a vindication of which was the release of pictures by Tehreek-e-Taliban showing the pictures moments before the attack.
