Countrywide mourning on APS anniversary


PESHAWAR: Schools remained closed across the country on Wednesday on the anniversary of last year’s Taliban attack that killed nearly 150 people, most of them schoolchildren, at the Army Public School (APS) here.

The closure was part of a day of national mourning and a precaution against militant attacks tied to the anniversary, Khyber Pakh­t­unkhwa government spokesman Mushtaq Ghani said.
