A teacher is believed to have been burned alive while her pupils were forced to watch as Taliban gunmen stormed a school in Pakistan and slaughtered 132 children killed.

Nine Taliban terrorists attacked the military school in the north-western Pakistani city of Peshawar today in the deadliest terrorist attack in the nation’s history.

A source told NBC: ‘They burnt a teacher in front of the students in a classroom. They literally set the teacher on fire with gasoline and made the kids watch.’

The victim was said to be the wife of army soldier Subedar Mazhar, who also lost a son in the atrocity.

Two bodies burned beyond recognition were taken to the Combined Military Hospital in Peshawar, MailOnline has been told. The victims may have been burned as a result of the suicide blast.

One suicide bomber is believed to have blown himself up in a room full of 60 children while there were reports that some of the victims arriving at a hospital in Peshawar had been beheaded, though Pakistani authorities have yet to confirm this.

The corridors of the city’s Combined Military Hospital were lined with dead students, their green-and-yellow school uniform ties peeping out of white body bags.

One distraught family member was given the wrong body because the faces of many children were badly burned as a result of the suicide bomb explosions.
By nightfall, the death toll had reached 141, with the Pakistani military confirming that 132 of those were children, with another 121 children injured.

As the city began the devastating task of treating the horrifically wounded and identifying the dead, one grieving father told MailOnline: ‘This is a terrible injustice. We are innocent people, my boys are innocents who do not carry guns and bombs.’
