Zohaib Ashraf, District Police Officer Kohat, confirmed the execution of four terrorists in the Central Jail Kohat this morning.

Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif had Msigned their black warrants earlier this month after a military court gave them death penalty.

They were convicted for slaughtering of innocent people, suicide bombing, training and providing assistance to suicide bombers, kidnapping for ransom and funding terrorists organisations.

On December 3, 2015 four terrorists involved in the Army Public School's (APS) deadly attack last year were hanged to death at Central Jail Kohat.

The Military Courts were setup after deadly attack on Army Public School on December 16, 2014 in which about 142 students and their teachers were martyred besides scores others injured.

Pakistan has refused to stop hangings despite mounting criticism by the human rights groups, the UN and the EU against implementation of death penalty.

There are about 8,000 death row prisoners in Pakistan.
