Report: Alleged Mastermind Behind Pakistan School Attack Killed in Raid


The alleged planner of the recent deadly attack on a school in Peshawar, Pakistan, is now dead, according to intelligence officials.

At least 132 students and nine staff members were killed this month when Taliban gunmen stormed a military school in Peshawar, taking hundreds of students at the Army Public School hostage in one of the bloodiest insurgent attacks to strike Pakistan in years.
