KP Assembly passes resolution to mark Dec 16 as Black Day

PESHAWAR: The provincial assembly of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has unanimously adopted a resolution, calling for the federal government to declare December 16 terrorist attack on Army Public School as Black Day.

At least 150 people, mostly schoolchildren, were killed when Taliban gunmen stormed Army Public School in Peshawar on Dec 16, 2014.

The attack prompted Pakistan to devise a national plan to stamp out terrorism from the country once and for all.

In its resolution, the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa assembly demanded that December 16 be declared as Youm-e-Shuhada-e-APS.

The resolution was presented by Anma Sardar of PML-N and was adopted by the house unanimously.
