Pakistan Wednesday executed four men linked to a
Taliban massacre in which more than 130 schoolchildren
were killed, with parents of victims saying the convicts
deserved “no forgiveness” as the anniversary of the attack
approached.
The executions, carried out by hanging Wednesday
morning at a prison in the city of Kohat, officials said,
were the first in connection with the December 16 attack
on an army-run school in the northwestern city of
Peshawar.
Survivors of the assault, in which the majority of the more
than 150 victims were children, said they were “happy” to
hear of the executions, with one father saying the
hangings should have been carried out in public squares
rather than behind prison doors.
A Kohat police official named the militants as Maulvi
Abdus Salam, Hazrat Ali, Mujeebur Rehman and Sabeel,
alias Yahya.
The army on Monday issued a so-called black warrant
confirming the executions were imminent. What role they
played in the massacre has not been confirmed.
The gunmen who carried out the massacre were all
reported killed by security forces during the attack.
The attack was Pakistan’s deadliest, and shocked and
outraged a country already scarred by nearly a decade of
extremism.
“The rest should be caught too, no one should be spared,”
survivor Waheed Anjum, 18, told AFP.
Anjum, who was 17 at the time of the attack, was struck by
three bullets, one in each arm and one in his chest.
“They shouldn’t have been hanged from prisons, they
should have been hanged from squares,” his father
Momin Khan Khattak added.
“There is no forgiveness in our hearts after what they did
to our children.”
