Suicide Bomber Kills Dozens, Wounds 150 in Attack on Mosque in Peshawar, Pakistan

HeadlineJan 30, 2023

In Pakistan, at least 34 people were killed and 150 others wounded after a suicide bomber attacked a mosque earlier today in the city of Peshawar. Part of the building collapsed as the bomb ripped through the mosque during noon prayers; authorities fear people may still be trapped in the rubble. The mosque is located inside a high-security compound that includes government buildings, the city’s police headquarters and counterterrorism department. This comes after government forces and the Pakistani Taliban ended their ceasefire in November. No one has claimed responsibility for the attack, which was the worst since last March, when a suicide bombing at a Shiite Muslim mosque killed at least 58 people. The Islamic State claimed responsibility for that attack.
