Four APS attackers hanged in Kohat
KOHAT (92 News) – At least four men linked to last December’s massacre at an army school which killed more than 150 people, mostly children were hanged in Kohat on Wednesday.
The men namely Moulvi Abdul Salam, Mujeeb-ur-Rehman, Sabeel and Ali were sentenced to death by a military court and are the first to be hanged in relation to the attack.
The move came after President Mamnoon Hussain rejected clemency appeals of the four convicts.
Taliban militants stormed the Army Public School in the north-western city of Peshawar on 16 December 2014.
The massacre prompted a crackdown on Islamist militants, the establishment of military courts and the lifting of a moratorium on executions.
Earlier, Army Chief General Raheel Sharif had signed death warrants for the four terrorists.
