Acting Greens Leader Adam Bandt
We are horrified by the unspeakable violence wrought on a school in Peshawar, Pakistan, that has resulted in the mass killing of children and teachers.
This is an appalling act by cowards who have targeted the innocent in the most horrifying and despicable way possible.
We condemn the attack in the strongest possible terms.
On this dark day, our thoughts and hearts are with the victims, their families, and with all the people of Pakistan.
Near or far, violence and killing hurts us all. This unspeakable violence will have a profound impact on parents and families everywhere around the world.
