Blast Kills Dozens In Pakistani Mosque

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan, Aug. 19 (UPI) — An explosion set off by a teenage suicide bomber killed at least 50 people and injured about 100 others Friday in a Pakistani mosque, authorities said.

The attacker set off a bomb about 2 p.m. in a mosque in Pakistan’s northwest tribal area of Khyber Agency near a border it shares with Afghanistan, Xinhua reported.

Hundreds of people were offering prayers in the mosque when the bomb exploded.

Local television footage indicated the mosque partially collapsed, possibly trapping many people under debris.

The Nation said some officials estimated there were as many as 700 people in the mosque when the bomb exploded.
