-- At least 141 people, including more than 132 children, have died in an attack on a military-run school in Peshawar. It is the deadliest terror attack in Pakistan's history. The Tehrik-e Taliban Pakistan (the Pakistani Taliban) has claimed responsibility.
-- Militants, who apparently did not try to take hostages, used firearms and explosives in what appears to have been an indiscriminate attack.
-- A Pakistani Taliban spokesman told RFE/RL's Radio Mashaal that the attack was revenge for an army operation in North Waziristan.
-- Military officials at the scene said that at least six armed men had entered the school and that about 500 students and teachers were believed to be inside. Police report that all militants have been killed and the attack is now over.
-- Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif announced a three-day mourning period across the country. Nobel Prize winner Malala Yousafzai, meanwhile, said she was "heartbroken" over the "senseless and cold-blooded act of terror."
