Militants stormed an army-run school in Pakistan Tuesday, killing at least 141 people, almost all of them children, in the country's bloodiest ever terror attack.Survivors described how the insurgents went from room to room shooting children as young as 12 during the eight-hour onslaught at the Army Public School in the northwestern city of Peshawar. The attack, claimed by the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) as revenge for a major military offensive in the region, was condemned by the U.S., U.N. and Western powers, as well as Pakistan's archrival India. U.S. President Barack Obama condemned the attack as "heinous" and said America would stand by Pakistan in its struggle against violent extremism.The Afghanistan Taliban also condemned the attack.
