An explosion apparently targeting a Shia mosque in Pakistan's northwestern city of Parachinar, in a remote area bordering Afghanistan, killed at least 11 people and wounded dozens, officials said. Parachinar is in the Kurram Valley of the Federally Administered Tribal Areas of Pakistan and has been sporadic target of terror attacks.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility but the blast, which took place as people gathered for Friday prayers near the women's entrance of the Shia mosque in the central bazaar, follows a series of attacks this year.
Gunfire preceded the incident, which he described as a suicide attack, adding, "The attack took place in a busy area and a women's mosque appears to be the target."
