Pakistan mosque blast death toll rises to 100
Distraught relatives have thronged hospitals in Pakistan’s Peshawar to look for their kin a day after a bombing ripped through a crowded mosque in a heavily fortified area of the city, killing 100 people, mostly policemen.
The attack, in the Police Lines district, was the deadliest in a decade to hit the northwestern city near the Afghan border and comes amid a surge in violence against the police.
No group has claimed responsibility.
