Islamabad: Pakistan Wednesday lifted a ban on capital punishment in terrorism cases, a day after 132 children were slaughtered by Taliban guerrillas in an army-run school here.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif revoked the ban on capital punishment in terrorism cases following which the terrorists facing death penalty could be executed, Geo TV reported.

Nawaz Sharif described the Peshawar school attack as a "national tragedy unleashed by savages" at All Party Meeting in Peshawar.

The audacious terror attack took place at the Army Public School at Peshawar. As many as 148 people, including 132 children, were killed in the attack that left the country numb with grief.

Besides the terror attack in Peshawar, the leaders will also discuss other challenges faced by the country during the meeting presided over by the prime minister.

Representatives from Awami National Party, Muttahida Qaumi Movement, and Pakistan People's Party, Qaumi Watan Party, Pashtunkhwa Mili Awami Party and others participated in the meeting.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan, who has led a protest against the government since August, too was present.
