BREAKING: Suicide bomber at Pakistani mosque kills at least 56 people

A suicide bombing at a mosque in Pakistan has killed at least 56 people, police and hospital officials said.

“We are in a state of emergency and the injured are being shifted to the hospital,” police officer Mohammad Sajjad Khan said.

One witness Ali Asghar claimed they saw the attacker enter the mosque before Friday prayers and open ” fire with a pistol” – picking out the worshippers “one-by-one”.

Senior police official Ijaz Khan confirmed many had been killed and that it was a suicide bombing.

He told Reuters that two armed men arrived near the mosque on a motorcycle and were stopped for a search by police on duty outside.

The death toll in the northwestern city of Peshawar is expected to rise substantially as many of the injured are in critical condition.

The authorities have not said who is behind the deadly and harrowing attack.

Heartbreaking images show bodies covered up outside the mosque minutes after the blast.
