The members of the gang entered the school on Warsak Road by wearing paramilitary Frontier Corps and started firing around 10:30 am(local time). They are still in the school and reports say that they are using students as armors.

A military source said to NBCNEWS, “”They burnt a teacher in front of the students in a classroom. They literally set the teacher on fire with gasoline and made the kids watch.”

Three explosions were heard inside the army-school. The situation was totally out of control outside the school with hundreds and hundreds military forces fighting, parents crying over the dead body of their children and the constant sound of firing from inside the school.

Taliban spokesman Muhammad Umar Khorasani said, “We selected the army’s school for the attack because the government is targeting our families and females, we want them to feel the pain.”
