Police officials in Pakistani say explosions at a High School, which was attacked by Taliban has caused the deaths of nearly one hundred.

Approximately 84 students were killed when Taliban gunmen stormed a military-run school in the city of Peshawar, taking hundreds of students and teachers hostage in the bloodiest insurgent attack in years. Armed troops surrounded the building in as attempt to rescue the remaining students.

Back in September of last year, dozens were killed in an attack on a church, also in Peshawar. This hardline Islamist movement immediately claimed responsibility saying they want to cause pain and suffering.
