Pakistan school attack: 'You don't send children to school to come home in a shroud'

Pakistan's prime minister has vowed to rid his country of terrorism after a Taliban attack at a school in Peshawar killed 141 people, mostly children, on Tuesday.

Gunmen went from class to class shooting the students in the Pakistani Taliban's deadliest attack to date. Funerals of the victims are continuing.

Shah Jehan, who lives in the UK, is a close friend of one of the teachers killed. He also lost two young relatives, aged 9 and 10, in the attack.

Mr Jehan spoke to the BBC's Elizabeth Glinka.
