Pakistan Taliban kill scores in Peshawar school massacre

Jan 12, 2015 : Emotional students bravely returned to a military-run school in Pakistan Monday for the first time since Taliban terrorists massacred 153 people.

Extra security measures were put in place as children arrived at the Army Public School in Peshawar, where militants in suicide vests laid siege to classrooms, shooting indiscriminately into crowds or killing youngsters one by one. Schools across the country were ordered shut after the Dec. 16 atrocity — which ended with 134 children dead.

Pakistan army chief General Raheel Sharif and his wife were on hand to greet students and their parents at the scene of the killings, while victims’ families were invited to special ceremony.

Headed by Maulana Fazlullah, the Pakistani Taliban has threatened to target schools again if the government did not stop military offensive against them in Pakistan’s lawless tribal areas.
