Islamabad, Dec 20:  Pakistan President Mamnoon Hussain on Saturday said the terrorists have crossed all limits and don't deserve any leniency, days after a deadly Taliban terror attack in Peshawar killed 148 people, mostly children.

"The nation is today united against the militants and it wants that they should not be given any concession because they do not deserve," he said after meeting the hospitalised students injured in the attack.

He said the Taliban had crossed all limits and are incorrigible but they will not escape the punishment. The ongoing operation Zarb-e-azb against militants would continue till it reaches its logical conclusion, Hussain said, adding that new laws will be enacted to expedite cases of militancy and give protection to witnesses.

He also said Pakistan and Afghanistan were cooperating with each other in the struggle to overcome militancy in the country.

At least 148 people were killed, most of them children, when Taliban militants stormed Army Public School on Warsak Road in Peshawar, firing indiscriminately on students from point blank range before blowing themselves up.
