KARACHI -- Pakistan has hanged four terrorists who were involved in Peshawar's Army Public School attack that killed 144 people on December 16 last year.

According to the Dawn, they were hanged at the Kohat Central Jail on Wednesday.

The execution comes as the country prepares to observe the first anniversary of the attack on December 16.

The army chief had signed the black warrants of Maulvi Abdus Salam, Hazrat Ali, Mujeebur Rehman and Sabeel alias Yahya on Monday.

The terrorists stormed Army Public School in Peshawar on December 16, 2014, killing at least 144 people, most of whom were children.
