5 men arrested involved in Peshawar massacre


Kabul: Afghan security services have arrested five men in connection with the massacre at a Pakistan military school in December that killed 150 people, most of them children, officials said.

The men, all foreigners, helped support the December 16 assault by the Taliban at the Army Public School and College in the city of Peshawar, the three Afghan officials said.

They said the men were arrested in recent weeks near Afghanistan’s eastern border with Pakistan. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they weren’t authorised to brief journalists about the arrests. Officials in Pakistan declined to immediately comment.
