Pakistan's army Thursday announced the death penalty for six militants linked to an assault on a school in the northwestern city of Peshawar that killed 151 people, mainly students, in the country's deadliest terror attack.The men were convicted by military courts established in the wake of the December 16 siege last year, while a seventh man was handed a life sentence.Pakistan also amended its constitution to allow military courts to try terror suspects.In February, the military spokesman Asim Bajwa said the army had taken 12 Taliban members into custody in connection with the school attack, adding that 27 conspirators were involved in total.At the time of the Peshawar attack, the Taliban said it was retaliation for the army's continuing operation against militants in the tribal areas.
