Pakistan slammed for resuming executions after school massacre

Pakistani children arrive at their school in Peshawar after three days of mourning for the children and staff killed by Taliban militants in an attack on an army-run school, on December 20, 2014Rights groups Saturday condemned Pakistan's decision to hang two convicted militants in its first executions for six years, as leaders vowed decisive action in the wake of a Taliban school massacre that left 149 people dead.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif relinquished the six-year ban on the death penalty in terror-related cases two days after the school attack, with two militants convicted of separate terrorism offences the first to face the noose.
