Pak Army chief signs death sentence of 30 terrorists

ISLAMABAD: The army chief has confirmed the death sentences passed by military courts on 30 militants, some of whom were involved in the country’s worst-ever extremist attack, authorities said Wednesday.
The military did not give a date for the executions, but when the army chief has given such orders in the past the hangings have usually been carried out within 24-48 hours.
"These terrorists were involved in committing heinous offences relating to terrorism," a military statement said. It listed a string of offences including a Taliban assault on a school in Peshawar in 2014 in which more than 150 people -- mostly children -- were killed in Pakistan’s deadliest-ever such assault.
The statement did not name the militants, specify what role they had played in the attacks, or say who was involved in which assault.
