Heartbreaking Photos: Some children massacred by Taliban in school horror #PeshawarAttack

This heartbreaking picture gallery shows the faces of some of the 148 innocent children slaughtered by Taliban militants as they stormed a school in the deadliest terrorist attack in Pakistan's history.
As mass funerals took place across Peshawar on the first of three days of national mourning, the identities of those murdered by the gloating gunmen at the military-run school began to emerge.
Among those who lost their lives were two teachers who were allegedly burned to death in front of their pupils as they attempted to help the young children. 
Two best friends, who died side-by-side in a hail of bullets, were also being mourned last night by classmates who miraculously survived the three-hour bloodshed.

A Facebook memorial page set up in Mubeen Shah Afridi's name had already attracted more than 20,000 likes just a few hours after the atrocity
