Pakistan attack victims buried in school uniforms

(CNN) - An incredible sense of heartache has gripped an entire nation in the aftermath of a savage attack on a Pakistani school. But Pakistan's prime minister vowed today that the deaths of 145 people, most of them children, would not be in vain.

The government lifted a moratorium on the death penalty within hours after Tuesday's massacre. And the Pakistani army has reached out to leaders in Afghanistan to team up against terrorist groups like the Taliban, which eagerly claimed responsibility for the attack.

CNN's international correspondent Nic Robertson joins "The Lead" live from Islamabad, Pakistan to discuss just how the country's responding to the terrorism and heartbreak.
