In Pakistan, the death toll from last Friday’s bombing at a mosque in the northwestern city of Peshawar has risen to 56, with nearly 200 others wounded. The Islamic State’s ISIS-K affiliate claimed responsibility for the attack on members of Pakistan’s Shia Muslim minority. Hundreds of mourners joined funeral prayers for the victims.
Hayat Ali: “This is an insult to humanity. This is a disgrace to Islam. Those who have been martyred were humans. They were worshiping Allah inside the mosque, and they were killed brutally.”
