Mourners across the globe join to support Pakistan

Candlelit vigils were held across the globe to remember the 132 children and nine teachers murdered in the Taliban attack on a Peshawar School.

Hundreds attended a candlelight vigil in Trafalgar Square after a group of Pakistanis studying in London decided to organise a show of support. Some people at the vigil held photographs of the victims while others simply stood in silence in the rain in an act of remembrance.

Mourners in at America's Columbia University and Washington DC also held candlelit vigils. Pakistan is in the middle of three days of mourning after the massacre which saw 141 people, mostly children, gunned down at the Army Public School in northern Pakistan on Tuesday.
