NEW YORK/ HONG KONG, 16 December 2014 – The horrific, callous killing of more than one hundred children today in Peshawar, Pakistan must do more than shock the conscience of the world – as it will.
It must also summon us, all the more, to support the parents of Pakistan who wish for their children the best possible education – and all those who are working to provide it.
UNICEF extends our heartfelt sympathy to the families of the children who have been lost. We mourn with them.
