ROUGH CUT, NO REPORTER NARRATION Pakistan broadcaster ARY on Thursday (December 18) showed more scenes from inside the school in Peshawar where 148 people, mostly students, were killed by Taliban insurgents. The footage shows blood stains on the floor where the attack took place. A shocked Pakistan on Wednesday (December 17) began burying 132 students killed in the attack by Taliban militants, that has heaped pressure on the government to do more to tackle the insurgency. People across the country have been lighting candles and staging vigils as parents bid final farewells to their children during mass funerals in and around Peshawar, the volatile city on the edge of Pakistan's lawless tribal belt where the school was located. Grief mixed with anger as people looked to the authorities - long accused of not being tough enough on extremists - to stem spiralling violence in a nation which has become a safe haven for al Qaeda-linked groups. Pakistanis may be used to almost daily attacks on security forces but an outright assault on children stunned the country, prompting commentators to call for a tough military response.
