If the attack was indeed in the school none would even dare stand. No spend cartridge was recovered in the school. What was heard was just gunshots,” Mr Chishiambo said.
In the shocking video, students of St Benedict Arror Girls are seen lying flat on the floor under the tables while in the dining as the sound of gunfire can be heard.
