Thousands of Pakistanis Sunday mourned the 149 people -- mainly children -- massacred by the Taliban, as the government executed four more militants on death row despite an outcry by rights groups. After the attack Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif ended a six-year moratorium on the death penalty, reinstating it for terrorism-related cases with the first executions of two militants taking place on Friday. Pakistan has described Tuesday's bloody rampage as its own "mini 9/11", calling it a game-changer in the fight against extremism. Men, women and children from Peshawar and other cities visited the army-run institution to offer prayers for those killed in the country's deadliest-ever terror attack.
