Talha Munir Paracha posted a photo collage showing the school before and after the attack
A Pakistani teenager who survived the Peshawar school massacre, one of the deadliest attacks to hit the country in recent years, caught the attention of social media users for a heart-rending photo he posted online.
Talha Munir Paracha went back to school this week along with other young students who survived a terrorist attack by Taliban gunmen on the army school in Peshawar on Dec. 16. The massacre claimed the lives of 150 students and teachers.
Upon his return, Paracha posted a photo collage showing the school before and after the attack.
The older image showed him standing with three of his friends.
While in the newer shot Paracha appeared one other student.
His two other friends, Rafiq Bangash, and Muhammad Yassen, who were seen in the older image, were noticeably absent. Both students had been killed in the attack.
