A bomb destroyed a mosque in northwest Pakistan during prayers on Friday, killing at least 70 people, a TV channel said. Over 50 people are reported injured.
“Forty-five to 46 bodies have been retrieved … up to 70 people could have been killed,” the top administrator in the Khyber region, Tariq Hayat Khan, said.
The attack site is near the Pak-Afghan border. Terrorist outfit Tehreek-e-Taliban, headed by Baitullah Mehsud is suspected to be behind the attack.
