The military school in Peshawar, Pakistan, where Taliban militants murdered 152 people, the majority of whom were children, last month has reopened for the first time since the attack.

Seven terrorists wearing bomb vests cut through a wire fence to infiltrate the Army Public School on 16 December. They went from class to class, killing 133 children and injuring more than 120 people.
