At least 28 people were killed and 150 others injured when a suicide attacker blew himself up at a mosque in the capital of Pakistan’s restive province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa on Monday, officials said.

The blast occurred near the Police Lines area around 1:40 pm when the Zuhr prayers were being offered, the Dawn newspaper reported.

According to security officials, the suicide attacker was present in the front row during the prayers when he exploded himself, injuring dozens of people offering prayers. “A portion of the building had collapsed and several people are believed to be under it,” police official Sikandar Khan said.

The injured are being shifted to the Lady Reading Hospital in Peshawar, the officials said.

Hospital sources said 13 of those injured were in a critical condition. The toll is likely to go up.

An emergency has been imposed in the locality and the area has been cordoned off. (Agencies)
