Pakistan is left reeling after Taliban militants storm a school and kill more than 141 people – at least 132 of them children.

It’s reported that gunmen stalked through the school, shooting children as they cowered under benches and booby-trapping buildings with homemade explosives.

The Pakistan Taliban – who have long conducted an insurgency against the Pakistani government as they seek to overthrow the authorities and bring in Sharia law – were quick to claim the terror attack.

They said it was revenge for the killing of hundreds of innocent tribesmen and their children during a recent offensive by the Pakistani military.
