At least 56 people were killed and 194 wounded on Friday by a suicide bomb at a mosque in Peshawar, the deadliest attack in the country since 2018.

The blast tore through the Kocha Risaldar area of the city moments before Friday prayers were to start, shattering the interior and showering the streets with broken glass.

Muhammad Asim Khan, a spokesman for Peshawar’s Lady Reading Hospital, said the death toll had climbed to 56, the deadliest since a July 2018 blast — claimed by the local chapter of the Islamic State group — killed 149 people at an election rally.

He said 50 of the 194 wounded were in “critical condition”.

Muhammad Ali Saif, a spokesman for the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa provincial government, said that the blast was a “suicide attack” and numerous witnesses recounted the moment of detonation.

He “then blew himself up”, Asghar said.
