When everyone gathered in the mosque for afternoon prayers, the suicide bomber detonated himself. According to accounts, horrifying pictures were captured as injured people covered in blood were transported to medical facilities as a result of the blast’s ferocity, which reportedly caused a portion of the mosque to cave in.
Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Muhammad Azam Khan, the acting chief minister of KP, has ordered that rescue efforts be accelerated in order to save the lives of the injured. He has also ordered that urgent measures be taken to transport the injured to hospitals right away.
Muhammad Azam Khan also gave instructions to the health officials to guarantee that the injured received the best medical care possible.
