Peshawar prepares for sad memories of Army School massacre

The first anniversary is approaching of the terrible army school massacre in Peshawar. Last year nine heavily-armed Islamic extremists scaled the walls of the school and killed more than 140 people, 134 of them children, before being killed or blowing themselves up.

Despite Pakistan being no stranger to acts of extremist violence nearly every day this attack stunned the country.

Now the army has made a song in the victim’s memory, which calls for revenge for the dead by, as the song goes, educating the enemy’s children.

The actual anniversary is on Wednesday, but such was the emotive power of the event that memorials and events to commemorate it have already begun.
