As many as 126 people are dead, including more than 84 identified as children, in Pakistan on Tuesday after Taliban soldiers stormed a military-run school located in the northwestern city of Peshawar.

At least five members of the Pakistan Taliban have been killed so far and reports indicate that hostages remain inside the walled-in campus of the school while members of the Pakistan Army and security forces continue to exchange gunfire with those who conducted the raid.
