Pakistan: Army arrests 12 Taliban involved in school attack

A Pakistani army spokesman says 12 local Taliban militants involved in a deadly school attack late last year have been arrested. Maj. Gen. Asim Saleem Bajwa told a media briefing Thursday that another nine members of what is believed to be a 27-member cell have already been killed. Bajwa credited the cooperation by neighboring Afghanistan — where six of the men were arrested based on tips from Pakistani intelligence.
