As of this writing, the death toll in the horrific attack on a school in Peshawar, Pakistan, stands at over 140. Pakistani officials say all of the attackers were killed.
A total of seven militants, members of the Pakistani Taliban, took part, according to the army. The attack is the deadliest ever by the group in Pakistan. The attack has so outraged the world, that even the Taliban in Afghanistan has condemned it, issuing a statement saying that the “killing innocent children is against the principals of Afghan Taliban…we condemned our thoughts are with the families of those who lost their love ones.”
