Death toll from Pakistan mosque bombing rises to 83
The death toll from the suicide bombing that tore through a mosque in northwestern Pakistan has risen to 87, a day after one of the biggest attacks in the unstable South Asian nation.
The attack on Monday occurred in one of the most fortified areas of Peshawar city, which houses offices of the police and counterterrorism departments.
The bomber blew himself up shortly after hundreds of worshippers lined up to say their afternoon prayer, the latest in a string of attacks targeting police.
Hospital official Mohammad Asim said more bodies were retrieved from the rubble overnight and early on Tuesday, and several of those critically injured died in hospital.
