Taliban militants in Pakistan have killed at least 126 people, most of them children, during an attack on a military-run school in the northwestern city of Peshawar on Tuesday morning.
RT reports that there were around 500 students and teachers inside Peshawar’s Army Public School at the time of the attack. While most escaped, some were taken hostage.
Shortly after the attack started, the Pakistani Taliban, Tehreek-e-Taliban, took credit, telling CNN six suicide bombers had scaled the school’s walls in the morning with orders to kill older students.
