Peshawar Blast: A massive explosion rips through a (Shia) mosque in Pakistan’s Peshawar city, killing at least 30. Death toll likely to mount according to officials. No group has claimed responsibility so far but it’s either ISIS or TTP, who have the license to bomb mosques and kill worshippers.

At least 30 people have been reported killed and another 80 injured in a suicide bombing at a Shiite mosque in Peshawar, Pakistan, on Friday, with rescuers urgently transporting the dead and injured from the scene.

The attack occurred on the first day of a cricket Test match between Pakistan and Australia in Rawalpindi, about 190 kilometers (120 miles) to the east. Australia hasn’t toured Pakistan in nearly a quarter-century due to security concerns.

According to Muhammad Ali Saif, a spokesman for the provincial government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, “more than 30” people were killed and 80 others were injured in the bomb near Peshawar’s Kocha Risaldar, which is around the same distance west of Islamabad.

He stated, “It was a suicide attack.”

An AFP correspondent witnessed body parts strewn over the scene, where police were holding anxious family members back. Nearby buildings’ windows were blown out by the blast.
