Four "hardcore terrorists" sentenced by military courts were executed in Pakistan on Wednesday.
The Army's Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said the terrorists were involved in heinous offences including terrorism, killing of innocent civilians, attacking a mosque, destruction of educational institutions and attacking law enforcement agencies and armed forces, Dawn reported.
All four convicts were active members of the outlawed Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan. They were identified as Ahmed Ali, Asghar Khan, Haroon ur Rasheed and Gul Rehman.
