ISLAMABAD: Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa has confirmed the death sentences passed by military courts on 30 militants, some of whom were involved in the country’s worst-ever extremist attack, authorities said on Wednesday. The military did not give a date for the executions, but when the army chief has given such orders in the past the hangings have usually been carried out within 24-48 hours.

“These terrorists were involved in committing heinous offences relating to terrorism,” a military statement said. It listed a string of offences, including a Taliban assault on a school in Peshawar in 2014 in which more than 150 people – mostly children – were killed in the country’s deadliest-ever assault.
