Around 40 people were killed at various location in the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province.

Thirty people were killed and sixteen were injured in a suicide attack at a mosque in Wana,  South Waziristan on Monday.

MNA Noor Mohammed Wazir of the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F), who was the apparent target of the attack, was also killed in the blast.

He was greeting members of the congregation after prayers when the bomber struck, officials told AFP.

The mosque was badly damaged in the blast, where local residents were busy trying to recover people from the rubble amid fears that the death toll could rise further.

Seven killed in explosion in Kurram Agency

A landmine exploded at a meeting of tribal elders on Monday, killing seven people in Khumas village in Kurram Agency.

“Seven people were killed in a landmine blast,” administrator Syed Musaddiq Shah told AFP.

He said it was unclear whether the blast was an intended attack or whether the ordinance had exploded accidentally, as the security situation in the area has improved remarkably.

Another administration official said seven people were injured in the blast, which occurred during a jirga meeting, between two tribes over a dispute about an office boy’s job at a public school built on common land.

    Whoever wrote that headline needs to be lynched as he does not know the difference between KP and FATA.
    Apart from the last one, the former 2 occured in FATA, not in KP.
    Nevertheless, that does not diminsh their barbarity.Recommend
