Satellite image shows madrasa buildings still standing at scene of Indian bombing

A high-resolution satellite image reviewed by Reuters shows that a religious school run by Jaish-e-Mohammad in northeastern Pakistan appears to be still standing days after India claimed its warplanes had hit the Islamist group's training camp on the site and killed a large number of militants.

Satellite image shows madrasa buildings still standing at scene of Indian bombing

This is a satellite image of a religious school in northeast Pakistan that India says it hit with airstrikes.

It appears to still be standing.

The madrasa is run by Islamist group Jaish-e-Mohammad.

India said its warplanes hit a training camp on the site a week ago (Tuesday, February 26) from and killed a large number of militants.

It was meant to be an aggressive response to a suicide car bomb attack claimed by Jaish-e-Mohammad, which killed 40 Indian paramilitary police.

Tensions between the two nuclear-armed neighbors soared after the attack.

Critics are asking whether Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government talked up the raid to stoke support before a general election.

Pakistan disputes India's story, but now Indian opposition figures want more information on the strike and the death toll -- and reassurance that Modi won't play with fire.

This is the first such image of the site publicly available -- it's high resolution and from a private operator in San Francisco.

No scorching or roof holes can be seen, and an image from last year seen by Reuters -- looks pretty much the same.

This was the site of the air raids when Reuters reporters visited last week.

Modi said India hit all intended targets.

Government officials put the dead at 250 or 300 militants.

Villagers pointed to four bomb craters and some splintered pine trees, but could see little other impact from the explosions.

Reuters found no evidence of a completely destroyed camp or heard of any deaths - to the extent that matched India's claims. Indian officials haven't replied to Reuters' emailed questions over the past days.
