KP caretaker Prime Minister Mohammed Azam Khan announced a day of mourning today (Tuesday) in the province following the vicious attack.
Flags will be flown at half mast across the state, he said on Monday, adding that the government shares the grief of the families of the martyrs.
The interim CM also assured injured families that the state government would not leave them alone after the tragedy.
In a statement released on Twitter, Prime Minister Shebaz Sharif, who visited Peshawar shortly after Monday’s brazen attacks, said the pain felt by the grieving family was indescribable.
“My message to the perpetrators of today’s despicable incident is that the determination of our people must not be underestimated. “The scale of the human tragedy is unimaginable,” he said, adding that terrorism was Pakistan’s “greatest national security challenge.”
