An injured Pakistani student lies on a bed at a hospital following an attack by Taliban gunmen on a school in Peshawar on Dec.16, 2014. Seven Taliban insurgents stormed Army Public School and Degree College, an army-run school, and for an hour terrorized students in the country's bloodiest attack yet from the terrorist group, killing 132 children and nine adult staffers, according to the military. "A lot of the children are under the benches,' " a Pakistani Taliban member said, according to 14-year-old student Ahmed Faraz during an interview with CNN, " 'Kill them.' " A Taliban spokesman told BBC Urdu that the school, which is run by the army, had been targeted in response to recent military offensives in North Waziristan and the nearby Khyber area, which killed hundreds of Taliban fighters. slideshow
