An explosion at a mosque in Pakistan’s northern city of Peshawar killed at least 46 people, including an imam, and injured over 100 others on Monday. Shahbaz Sharif, the premier of Pakistan, described the explosion as a suicide strike.

Near Peshawar’s Police Lines neighborhood, the tragic explosion happened at around 1:40 pm during midday prayers. The hospital has admitted several patients in serious condition, and more are anticipated to pass away as a result of the attack.

An explosion in Peshawar, Pakistan, that appeared to be directed at a policeman praying in a mosque has killed at least 47 people.

According to authorities, there are still persons under the rubble.

Terrorists “aim to generate fear by targeting people who do the duty of safeguarding Pakistan,” according to Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif.

Although no one party has claimed responsibility for the incident, it has been connected to the Pakistan Taliban.

According to authorities, there are still persons under the rubble.

The organization broke a ceasefire in November, and since then, the level of violence has increased.

33 militants were killed in December when it attacked a police station similar to Peshawar in the country’s northwest.

Early, unverified reports claimed a bomber had suicide-bombed the mosque.

According to Muhammad Ijaz Khan, the head of the Peshawar police department, there were between 300 and 400 police officers present at the time.

The attack’s perpetrators “had nothing to do with Islam,” according to a statement by PM Sharif. “The entire country is standing united against the scourge of terrorism,” he continued.

In the northwestern city, close to the nation’s border with Afghanistan, the explosion happened at 13:30 (08:30 GMT) during afternoon prayers.

A wall collapsed in half, according to a video that was shared on social media and confirmed by the BBC. People scrambled over the rubble to leave the mosque, which was coated in bricks and other debris.

More bodies are being removed from the mosque while the rescue effort goes on, according to Shafiullah Khan, deputy commissioner of Peshawar city.

Mr. Khan continued, “Right now, saving the lives of those trapped under the rubble is our top concern.”

Some of those hurt were in severe condition, according to Mohammad Asim, a spokesman for Lady Reading Hospital in the city.

Mr. Asim remarked, “It’s an emergency issue.”

The BBC was informed that Lady Reading Hospital had declared an emergency and that they were still taking in injured patients.

The prime minister made an urgent trip to Peshawar where he will meet with injured victims and receive an update from local authorities.

Another attack occurred in Peshawar last March, this time in a Shia mosque, killing hundreds of people.

The capital’s Islamabad Police issued a security high alert and said that security had been stepped up at all ports of entry and exit.
