Emotional tributes in Dubai continue to pour in for victims of the Peshawar school attack, with Dubai students holding a prayer and vigil on Thursday.
Pupils and officials at Shaikh Rashid Al Maktoum Pakistani School perform a funeral prayer yesterday for the victims of the Peshawar school attack
Around 200 pupils of Shaikh Rashid Al Maktoum Pakistani School (SRAMPS) took part in a funeral prayer held on campus for the 141 people - 132 of them children - that were killed on Tuesday in an attack on a school in Pakistan's Peshawar city.
"This [Thursday] is the last school day for us (SRAMPS) before our winter break. But for the students in Peshawar [school attack], it was the last day of their lives. They went to school but never came back," said Aurangzeb Khalid, 15.
In Dubai on Thursday, some school staff, UAE residents and Pakistani consulate staff also joined the short prayer. It was followed by the laying of cards at a wreath there. Students had jotted down messages on the handmade cards, such as "stop killing" and "we want peace".
