Tal­iban kill 132 school­child­ren

SP's MAI - - ROUND-UP 2014 -

The Tal­iban at­tacked an army-run school in Pe­shawar on De­cem­ber 16, killing 132 stu­dents and 16 teach­ers, staff mem­bers and sol­diers. This is said to be the blood­i­est mas­sacre the coun­try has seen for years. More than eight hours after mil­i­tants slipped into the heav­ily guarded com­pound through a back en­trance, the army de­clared the op­er­a­tion to flush them out over, and said that all nine in­sur­gents had been killed.
