“I extend my deepest condolences to the families and loved ones of the victims of today’s heinous terrorist attack on the Army Public School in Peshawar, Pakistan.  I am shocked and appalled by this senseless act of violence against students and teachers and join the international community in strongly condemning the perpetrators.
