34 Killed, 150 Injured In Pakistani Mosque’s Suicide Bombi

34 people were killed while 150 others were injured in a suicide bomb attack on a mosque in Pakistan's Peshawar on Monday.

Most of the casualties were policemen and police officers – and the targeted mosque is located within a sprawling compound, which also serves as the city's police headquarters.

The Police said between 300 to 350 worshipers were inside the mosque when the bomber detonated his explosives.

The police compound is located in a high-security zone in Peshawar, along with several government buildings, and it was unclear how the bomber managed to penetrate so deep inside the zone unnoticed.

After the incident, Sarbakaf Mohmand, a commander for the Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack.

Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif in a statement condemned the bombing and ordered authorities to ensure the best possible medical treatment for the victims. He also vowed "stern action" against those who were behind the attack.
