No, they're not soldiers. These armed men are actually teachers.

At this school in Pakistan, teachers have been told to carry guns in order to protect children. One is even acting as a sniper on the school roof.

Many schools have taken this unusual step following a Taliban attack that killed over 130 pupils.

This teacher says he would rather be carrying a pen.
