Vigils held for victims of Pakistan school attack
The Pakistani community in Ditmas Park banded together to mourn more than 140 people killed in a Taliban attack on a school in Pakistan.
A candlelight vigil was held Wednesday night to honor the memory of those killed. It was led by the Council of Peoples Organization, which consists of a close-knit group of Pakistani members.
The mourners held signs with pictures of the attack, and said prayers that called for change.
Borough President Eric Adams also held a vigil. He, along with other elected officials and community members, denounced the attack.
Reports say Taliban gunmen stormed a military-run school in the city of Peshawar in northwestern Pakistan on Tuesday, killing 148 people. Most were children.
