A powerful bomb has exploded inside a Shia mosque in Pakistan’s northwestern city of Peshawar, killing more than 50 people and wounding dozens more, many of them critically.
The explosion occurred as worshippers had gathered in the Kucha Risaldar mosque in Peshawar’s old city area for Friday prayers.
Hospital officials said at least 56 people were killed, revising an earlier toll of 30 dead. At least 194 people were reported wounded.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility. (Al-Jazeera)
