Suicide attack kills 40 in Khyber mosque bombing — Video
PESHAWAR: Forty people were killed in a mosque bombing in northwest Pakistan, with 85 wounded, a government official said. Local administrator Fazal Khan said there’s some evidence it was a suicide attack.
Some 300 people were at the mosque for Friday prayers when the bomb exploded in the Ghundi village of Khyber tribal region.
Pakistan’s tribal belt is a hotbed of militant activity, as well as sectarian rivalry.
No group claimed responsibility for the bombing, but the Taliban and other insurgents have attacked scores of targets in the area, which lies along the Afghan border.
