Peshawar attack: Teachers armed to protect students

Teachers at some schools in north-western Pakistan have been told they can take guns into school to protect students.

The decision comes after the Taliban attacked a public school and killed nearly 150 people.

It has caused controversy, with some saying teachers should not be doing a job for the police and security services.

Shahzeb Jillani reports from Peshawar.
