As I read the story, I asked myself, when will this killing end?. First it was the kidnap of over 200 Chibook school girls in Chibok, Nigeria, and how the worst happened yesterday. About 170 people were killed in a Pakistani school by the Taliban (terrorist group). Reports say 132 of the dead were kids.
MailOnline just posted a story of how it all happened. This is sad, this is wickedness, so bad that the Afghan Taliban condemned the evil act committed by their Pakistani counterpart.
Below is the summary of the barbaric event
• Gunmen (numbering seven) in Peshawar entered school (which has students aged 10 to 18) and started shooting at random
• One terrorist blew himself up in a classroom containing 60 children
• Teacher set on fire in front of pupils, with the children forced to watch the awful and agonizing death ( The victim – allegedly singled out because she was married to a senior army officer – was said to be the wife of army soldier Subedar Abbass.)
• One investigative official told MailOnline: ‘They knew that children of many army personnel are studying in the school’.
•’Also they had the complete information that wives of certain army officials are teachers in the school.’
• Insurgents had ‘inside information’ before carrying out well-planned attack
• A 10-year-old boy caught up in the massacre has spoken of his dramatic escape from Taliban gunmen as bullets whizzed past his head – having seen two of his classmates shot dead in front of him.
• Another boy said he was the sole survivor of a group of ten friends who tried to find a hiding place but were mown down.
• Other survivors told how they played dead while insurgents scoured the school looking for children to shoot, before open fire indiscriminately – sometimes with smiles on their faces
• Taliban accepted responsibility for the attack, claiming it ‘was just a trailer’
• Expert claims attack could be due to Malala Yousafzai winning Nobel prize
• Afghan Taliban criticized ‘killing of innocent children’ as against principles
• The massacre is the worst ever in the deeply troubled region
• After a nine-hour battle Pakistani special forces killed all seven terrorists. During this witnesses described hearing heavy gun fire and explosions.
• The massacre was also said to be an act of revenge against the Pakistani army, which has been attempting to suppress the Pakistani Taliban in their north Waziristan tribal homelands over the past few months.
• A military source said that seven army personnel, including two officers, were wounded in the fighting.
• It appeared to be the worst attack in Pakistan since a 2007 suicide bombing in the port city of Karachi killed 150 people.
