Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif lifted a de facto moratorium on capital punishment on Dec. 17, a day after Pakistani Taliban gunmen attacked a school and killed 132 students and nine teachers. The slaughter put pressure on the government to do more to tackle the Islamist insurgency.

Twenty-seven people have been hanged since then, most of them militants, but last week it emerged that officials had quietly widened the policy to include all prisoners on death row hose appeals had been rejected.

"They were not only terrorists, they included the other crimes, some of them were murderers and some did other heinous crimes", the ministry spokesman said of the 12 executed at various jails.

The moratorium on executions had been in place since a democratic government took power from a military ruler in 2008.
