Pakistan Wednesday began three days of mourning for the 132 children and nine school staff massacred by the Taliban in the country's deadliest ever terror attack, as the world united in revulsion.Across the country many schools closed as a mark of respect, while those that opened held special prayers for the 141 killed in Tuesday's assault on an army-run school in the northwestern city of Peshawar. A group of heavily armed militants went from room to room at the school during an eight-hour killing spree claimed by the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) that sparked condemnation worldwide. Across the border in India, Prime Minister Narendra Modi put aside acrimony with Pakistan to ask schools to observe two minutes' silence to honour the dead.There were around 500 students in the school when the attack started, and the army's chief spokesman General Asim Bajwa said the attackers, equipped with ammunition and food to last "days", only wanted to kill.
