8.19pm: Taliban gunmen who attacked a school in northwestern Pakistan on Tuesday made no demands and started killing children as soon as they entered the building, a military spokesman said.

“They didn’t take any hostages initially and started firing in the hall,” said Major General Asim Bajwa. But the militants had brought rations for several days, he said, implying that they may have intended to take students hostage.

Of the 141 people reported dead, at least 132 were children along with nine staff members.
