Death toll in suicide bombing at Mohmand Agency's Sunni mosque by Wahhabi takfiri during Friday prauers rose to 28. Another 31 injured.

 

Confirming the incident, assistant political agent said that the mosque was located in village Payee Khan in Anbar tehsil of the agency. “It was a suicide blast,” the assistant political agent quoted a witness as saying.

“The suicide bomber was in crowded mosque, he shouted ‘Allahu Akbar,’ and then there was a huge blast,” Naveed Akbar, deputy administrator of Mohmand agency said.

A second regional official also confirmed the bombing in the village of Payee Khan, in the troubled region of Federally Administered Tribal Areas (Fata) bordering Afghanistan.

“Many people gathered inside the mosque where a suicide bomber blew himself up,” said Shaukat Khan, another official in Fata.

The country’s frontier regions, which are deeply conservative and hard to access due to rough terrain, have long been the sanctuary of fighters from al Qaeda, the Taliban and other Saudi co-religionist takfiri extremist groups.
