The pupils are alright at the Army Public School in Peshawar
The Islamists murdered 16 teachers and 132 children at the Army Public School in Peshawar, Pakistan.
Mishal Husain from the Today programme, writes in the Telegraph:
A further cycle of violence is what many in this country now fear, but vengeance is a powerful emotion.

This school is my identity.’’
After the horror, Aakif Azeem and his classmates makes us hopeful…
