Four militants involved in the massacre of 134 schoolchildren in Pakistan last year have been executed, weeks before the anniversary of one of country’s worst ever terrorist attacks.

The men were hanged in a prison in the city of Kohat early on Wednesday for their involvement in the attack on the Army Public school in Peshawar, in which a team of nine suicide fighters used assault weapons and suicide bombs to kill 151 pupils and staff.
