Pakistan: At least 23 killed in suicide blast at a mosque

The blast reportedly occurred at a mosque near the Afghanistan border in Payee Khan village. The bomber allegedly shouted “Allahu Akbar” before detonating himself inside the crowded mosque, according to Reuters.

Shaukat Khan, an official in the northwestern FATA region, said that at least 24 people had been wounded, and “many people were gathered inside the mosque at the time when the suicide bomber blew himself up.”

Pakistan’s deeply conservative frontier regions are hard to access due to the rough terrains, and have long been the sanctuary of al Qaeda, Taliban and fighters from other militant Islamist groups.

    What else can happen at the Terror Nation stan when it allows the Terror acts and Terrorism to function from their soil and still the stani establishment not learned their mistakes and instead allow Terror acts to grow in their soil and they will continue to indulge in such attacks. When the stani establishments not able to control terror acts on their own people there is no authority to raise the issues that happens in other Nations and in due course the nation will only split due to the freedom movement that take place in the Region !!!
