|Officials said authorities made several arrests in the case of the Taliban school attack that killed 148 in the northwestern city of Peshawar, on Sunday. Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said, "Quite a few suspects who were facilitators in one way or the other have been taken into custody," and added that the interrogations were "moving ahead in a positive manner." He did not disclose their identities or say how many they were. Seven Taliban gunmen wearing explosives belts stunned the world on Tuesday by storming into the military run school and slaughtering 148 people, including 132 students. Another nearly 121 students were wounded in the ensuing eight-hour siege of the school, located in an area where many military families live. The group claims it fights to establish a ruling system based on its own harsh brand of Islam. It has killed thousands over nearly a decade.
