The Taliban gunmen took revenge and killed 150 child and teens in a school of Pakistan. The death toll in the Taliban assault Tuesday on a school in northwest Pakistan, the army said, making it the country`s deadliest ever terror attack.
The Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) claimed responsibility for the attack as retaliation for a major military offensive in the region, saying militants had been ordered to shoot older students.
The attack began around 10.30am (0530 GMT) when a group of at least five insurgents, reportedly in military uniforms, entered the school.
Around five and a half hours after the attack began, the army’s chief spokesman General Asim Bajwa said the attackers had been cleared from all but one of the school’s buildings.
Five militants had been killed, Bajwa said.
