    Deadly blast hits Pakistan mosque

    A bomb has exploded at a mosque near the town of Jamrud in the Khyber agency in north-west Pakistan, killing at least 50 people, officials say.

    The top administrator in the Khyber region, Tariq Hayat, said he feared the death toll could rise to 70.

    Officials say the attack was a suicide bombing and the mosque has collapsed.

    North-west Pakistan has witnessed a number of suicide attacks linked to the Taleban insurgency and also to the Shia-Sunni sectarian divide.Copyright © 2009 Asnycnow15 News/English
