Statement by Anthony Lake, UNICEF Executive Director, on Killing of Children in Peshawar, Pakistan

New York (December 16, 2014) “The horrific, callous killing of more than one hundred children today in Peshawar, Pakistan must do more than shock the conscience of the world—as it will. 

It must also summon us, all the more, to support the parents of Pakistan who wish for their children the best possible education—and all those who are working to provide it.

UNICEF extends our heartfelt sympathy to the families of the children who have been lost.  We mourn with them.”
