'We Have Killed All the Children… What Do We Do Now?\

Blood splattered the stairs outside the auditorium. Inside, the scene was even worse.

After terrorists invaded a Pakistan high school and slaughtered more than 130 students, one of the Taliban militants reportedly had one of his last conversations with his handler. The chilling transcripts of the conversation were apparently provided to local newspapers by law enforcement officials.

“We have killed all the children in the auditorium. What do we do now?” one of the terrorists reportedly told his handler.

“Wait for the army people, kill them before blowing yourself,” the handler responded.

Militants slaughtered 148 people — mostly young students — during the grisly attack on a military-run school the Pakistani city of Peshawar.

The militants first set fire to a car in a nearby neighborhood, likely as a diversion, residents said. Seven gunmen then scaled the school's brick fence. They headed into the building and up the stairs to the auditorium, where many students were gathered.

They broke open the doors, took to the stage and started indiscriminately firing, said military spokesman Maj. Gen. Asim Bajwa. Five attackers ended up blowing themselves up inside the school, the Telegraph reports.

The military took media on a tour of the site on Wednesday.

Blood splattered the stairs outside the auditorium. Inside, the scene was even worse.

Large pools of blood smeared the floors. A ninth-grader's notebook lay torn on the stage, next to a psychology textbook and some broken glasses. A large sign outside listing membership in various school committees appeared untouched while another wall was riddled by bullets. Bajwa said the military recovered about 100 bodies from the auditorium.
