Pakistan is still reeling from the horrific Taliban massacre in Peshawar that left 148 people dead this week. And as the nation mourns the tragedy, grief is quickly turning to anger.
Seven Taliban militants entered a Peshawar school Tuesday and murdered 141 people, including 132 children, before being killed in confrontations with police. The Pakistani Taliban claim the attack was retaliation for an increased military campaign against the group.
The backlash has been swift and severe; Pakistani officials report they've killed about 150 suspected militants in strikes and raids since the Peshawar attack Tuesday.
