Pakistan to set up military courts to try terror suspects
Pakistan is to establish military courts to hear terrorism-related cases in the wake of a massacre at a school.
Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said the move would help ensure "terrorists pay the price" for their "heinous acts".
Last week, Taliban fighters attacked an army-run school in Peshawar, killing 152 people, including 133 children.
Pakistan's political parties reached agreement on the new courts after meeting to discuss a national plan of action to tackle terrorism.
