Taliban Storm Pakistan School, Kill Mostly Children

A deadly, hours-long siege of a school in northwest Pakistan ended Tuesday evening with all the Taliban militants responsible killed, at least 130 people - most of them children - dead and a country once again grasping for answers after a horrific attack.

Six suicide bombers scaled the walls of Army Public School and Degree College in the violence-plagued city of Peshawar around 10 a.m. (midnight ET) intent on killing older students there, according to Mohammed Khurrassani, a spokesman for the Tehreek e Taliban Pakistan, or Pakistan Taliban.

These Taliban had "300 to 400 people ... under their custody" at one point, Khurrassani said.

Pakistani troops responded, fending off gunfire and improvised explosive devices planted by terrorists as they went through the compound, building by building, room by room. By 4 p.m., they had managed to confine the attackers to four buildings, and a few hours later, Peshawar police Chief Mohammad Aijaz Khan said that all of them were dead.

Still, the ordeal wasn't over.

Bill Cosby has kept quiet as sexual assault allegations mounted against him, but on Monday, his wife, Camille, finally spoke out in defense of her husband.

"He is a kind man, a generous man, a funny man," Mrs. Cosby said in a statement first reported by the CBS Evening News. "A different man has been portrayed in the media over the last two months. It is the portrait of a man I do not know."

In her statement, Mrs. Cosby mentions Rolling Stone'sreexamined story of rape at the University of Virginiaand compares her husband's current crisis to the one going on at Rolling Stone.

"The story was heart-breaking, but ultimately appears to be proved to be untrue," Mrs. Cosby said, referring to the magazine's story. "Many in the media were quick to link that story to stories about my husband - until that story unwound."
