PESHAWAR: A student of Army Public School has succumbed to his wounds on Tuesday, three days before Pakistan marks the second anniversary of the 2014 massacre.

At least 150 people mostly students and staff members were killed when Taliban gunmen disguised as troops attacked their military-run school in Peshawar on December 16, 2014.

The deadly attack shocked the entire nation, prompting the government to launch a national action plan (NAP) to root out the scourge of terrorism and extremism once and for all.
