The death toll is now over 130. The jihadis set off a jihad-martyrdom suicide bomb that killed a number of students, while beheading others and making students watch as a teacher was burned alive. They believe that all this pleases their god, because it “strikes terror into the hearts of the enemies of Allah” (Qur’an 8:60).
An update on this story. “Peshawar school attack: Taliban ‘burn teacher alive in front of pupils and behead children,'” by Lianna Brinded, International Business Times, December 16, 2014 (thanks to Twostellas):
Taliban terrorists that disguised themselves as soldiers and murdered over 130 people, mostly children, at a Pakistan school allegedly burned a teacher alive and made the students watch.
According to a NBC News report, which cited an unnamed military official, the terrorists stormed the Army Public school in Peshawar, in north-west Pakistan, and committed the horrific act as well as detonating a suicide bomb which killed a number of students.
“They burnt a teacher in front of the students in a classroom,” said the unnamed military source to the US TV network.
“They literally set the teacher on fire with gasoline and made the kids watch.”
At least six militants entered the Pakistani school wearing security uniforms, before massacring an estimated 132 people and injuring another 122.
Most of the school’s 500 students have been evacuated….
