Taliban gunmen stormed a military school in Pakistan on Tuesday, killing dozens of students and wounding many more, Pakistan’s military said.

It was not immediately clear if hostages were being held.

The attack began in the early morning, with the gunmen entering the school — a military-run facility in the northwestern city of Peshawar with students in grades 1-10 — and shooting at random, said police officer Javed Khan. Army commandos quickly arrived at the scene and exchanged fire with the gunmen, he said.

Pervez Khattak, the chief minister of the province, said as many as 84 children were killed, but there were unconfirmed reports the figure may be far higher.

  1. Pakistan is Muslim territory!
    That said that were children attacked, civilians in this war of the Taliban. Those were women attacked. Most likely women with children.
    What do their religious beliefs say about that?
    If they are doing this in the name of their religion . . . then they have defamed that religion and its sense of honor throughout the entire world.
    Rather than making their cause this particular action is without honor. When you attack fellow Muslims, civilians in this war, then you take away any right to hospitality that would normally be given under the Muslim code.
    Someone really messed up big time on the Taliban side of things.
    If the Pakistan Military has any honor they will go after these people and kill them on sight.
    They will kill anyone that gives them shelter.
    When is this behavior that is tolerated enough?
    Because enough is enough.
