    Gunmen in Pakistan have taken hundreds of students and teachers hostage in a school in the northwestern city of Peshawar, military officials at the scene said.
    Twelve people have been killed and 40 injured in the attack, according to a local hospital official.

    A Reuters journalist at the scene could hear heavy gunfire from inside the school as soldiers surrounded it.
    Military officials said at least six armed men had entered the military-run Army Public School.

    About 500 students and teachers were believed to be inside.
    The attack comes as the Pakistani military wages a major offensive against Taliban and other militants in the tribal area of North Waziristan.
    TTP spokesman Muhammad Khorasani told AFP there were six attackers.
    "They include target killers and suicide attackers. They have been ordered to shoot the older students but not the children," he said.

    Shooting kids one should have barbaric heart , this is truly unacceptable

    These animals should not be killed immediately with bullet , there hands and legs should be chopped & thrown on the street to beg

    @ BBC


    Taliban expert speaks to BBC World Service
    Posted at11:00

    BBC World Update has been speaking to Taliban expert Ahmed Rashid, who has been outlining reasons why the Taliban would attack the school at this time. He suggests:

    • To demoralise the military
    • Malala Yousafzai just won the Nobel Peace Prize
    • Peshawar has become an ungovernable city; terrorism is now rampant


    Explosions heard at Taliban siege school in Peshawar, as death toll rises to 126, local officials say @BBC

    This is a side effect of fighting a conventional war against a guerrilla army.

    Sri Lanka had similar problems dealing with LTTE.

    Poor kids just paid the price of 6 decades plus of idiocy by Pakistani leadership... they have transformed their country into a terrorist assembly line... In 1980's they backed American funded Taliban to leverage against India without realizing that America is several thousand Miles away and eventually the heat of terrorism will be felt by Pakistan and its innocent civilians.
