Well, the terminology gets a bit more complicated. We're in Iraq with this story. In addition to "militants" (who kill pupils with bombs), we also have "insurgents". But still no "terrorists".

ERBIL, Iraq, Dec. 18 - One Iraqi eighth grader was killed and six others wounded Saturday morning in Mosul when insurgents trying to detonate a roadside bomb in the path of a routine American patrol misfired and hit a school bus full of children, the military said.
American troops identified and fired at insurgents nearby, killing one, military officials said, following the 7:45 a.m. attack in Mosul, in northern Iraq.
Insurgents also staged several attacks in north-central Iraq on Saturday, killing one Iraqi and wounding eight others at an election center near Samarra and wounding four American security contractors in Baiji.
