Pakistani officials have offered a 10m rupee ($105,000; £66,000) reward for information leading to the arrest of the attackers of a prominent teenage rights campaigner.
Malala Yousafzai, 14, is recovering from surgery after being shot on Tuesday in north-western Swat Valley.
The Taliban said they had shot her because she had "promoted secularism", and that they would target her again.
Protests against the shooting have been held in several Pakistani cities.
Malala Yousafzai is still unconscious in hospital in Peshawar, where she has been visited by army chief Gen Ashfaq Parvez Kayani and Interior Minister Rehman Malik.
Mr Malik said the "whole gang" who carried out the attack had been identified and said the nation "will not let them run away, we will catch and punish them".
Gen Kayani said it was time to "stand up to fight the propagators of such barbaric mindset and their sympathisers".
