Horrifying images have emerged showing the devastation from a Taliban assault on a Pakistan school that left nearly 150 people dead.

Nine terrorist gunmen stormed a military school in Pakistan Tuesday, leaving 132 students and 16 teachers dead. Officials called it the worst attack in the country's history.

Blood spattered floors and bullet-riddled walls line the school's halls. Burnt-out classrooms, destroyed desks and splintered chairs tell the story of the senseless violence.

An additional 121 people were injured during the attack, authorities said.

A similar attack occurred in 2012 against a Pakistan military school, but the death toll in Tuesday's assault is unprecedented.

Pakistani school girl Malala Yousef was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize this year after remarkably surviving a gunshot wound to the head during a 2012 Taliban assassination attempt.
