Pakistan Taliban: More militants to be executed

Pakistan has announced it will execute more militant prisoners in the next few days after lifting a moratorium in response to the Peshawar school massacre.

The first executions were carried out on Friday, among them a former soldier sentenced for attacking the army headquarters in 2009.

The country's prisons are on high alert over fears the Taliban might try to stage jailbreaks.
