The Pakistan School Siege

The Pakistan School Siege

Sometimes the name of our site really doesn't go together well with the picture stories we post. We apologise for that. Yesterday Sydney was scene of a hostage situation carried out by a religious extremist and today Pakistan was shaking to it's core by an attack carried out on a school, again, by religious extremists. During this cowardly attack 132 people, mainly students and teachers, were killed. Some of the images in this post can be disturbing to some.
