Pakistan Schools Renamed After Victims in Pershawar Attack

The Pakistani government has started to rename dozens of state schools after the students killed by the Taliban militants in a horrific gun attack at a military-run school last December. "It's an effort to remember sacrifices of those students and courage of their parents and other families," regional education minister Mushtaq Ahmad Ghani said. The victims came from all over the northwest province of Khyber Pakhunkhwa. On Dec. 16, 143 students were killed after a half-dozen suicide bombers attacked the school, leaving 200 students injured after the eight hour massacre.
