Killing people who are seeking knowledge is much more heinous than killing ordinary people. If Muslim terrorists are committing this then they may not find peace in hereafter. The message of Quran is very clear that during Wars leave alone; plants, old, young and women, those who seek refuge and those who are praying and those who are in seek of knowledge. In war fight only, to defend yourself, against those who raise weapons to kill you. And there was no war going on in that scientific conference. For the Sake of Allah stop killing innocent people.
