At least 17 people were killed and 83 injured in a blast at a mosque in Peshawar’s Police Lines area on Monday afternoon, Dawn.com reported.
Mohammad Asim, a spokesperson for the Lady Reading Hospital (LRC), confirmed the casualties, adding that some of the injured persons were in critical condition.
Meanwhile, police official Sikandar Khan told Reuters that a portion of the building had collapsed and several people were believed to be under it.
So far, it is unclear whether a bomb was planted in the mosque or if it was a suicide attack.
On the other hand, the police have closed roads leading to the Red Zone.
In a tweet after the blast was reported, PTI Chairman Imran Khan strongly condemned the “terrorist suicide attack” in Peshawar and expressed sympathies with the families of the victims.
Strong earthquake strikes Pakistan
Solar storm to strike Earth today
A solar storm is expected to hit Earth today, December 1, according to forecasts from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
A solar storm is a coronal mass ejection (CME) that consists of waves expelled from the Sun that can flow outward across the heliosphere, affecting the entire Solar System, including Earth. CME will generate geometric waves that can impact radio, GP…
Space Weather Physicist Dr Tamitha Skov said on her X handle that “A Direct Hit! The impressive #solarstorm launched in the Earth-strike zone has been modeled by NASA. The storm is predicted to hit Earth by midday December 1. Along with two earlier storms already en route means we have a 1,2,3-punch. If the magnetic field is oriented correctly, expect #aurora to reach deep into mid-latitudes. Amateur #radio & #GPS reception issues are likely, especially on Earth’s nightside. G3+ conditions are possible with this storm series.”
Woman stabs boyfriend for ‘looking at other women’
According to FOX news, a Florida woman is in jail after she allegedly used rabies needles to stab her boyfriend because he was apparently looking at other women.
Sandra Jimenez, 44, was charged with aggravated battery in connection with a Saturday incident at a home shared with her boyfriend, according to a Miami-Dade Police Department arrest affidavit seen by FOX 35 Orlando.
Officers responded to a hospital following a report of a man who was stabbed in the eye with a needle. The victim told police that Jimenez used their dogs’ rabies needles to pierce his right eyelid during an argument about him “looking at other women,” the affidavit read.
Jimenez allegedly jumped on her boyfriend of eight years while he was lying on the couch and stabbed him with the needles before leaving their home when she “realized what she had done.”
The victim called 911 and was rushed to a hospital, where he spoke with officers about the attack.
Police later found Jimenez sleeping in her car outside the home and arrested her, the affidavit said. Jimenez claimed that her boyfriend’s injuries were “self-inflicted” when she was questioned by police about the alleged attack.
She is in custody at Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center on $7,500 bond, according to arrest records.
