50 killed as suicide blast hits mosque in Pakistan
A suicide bomber struck a mosque in north west Pakistan, killing 50 people and leaving around 80 injured. Officials say the target may have been a member of Pakistan's Senate who had encouraged people to oppose the Taliban. The targeted prayer session took place in an area where the Taliban has recently gained ground. In a separate attack, a second mosque was bombed near the city of Peshawar, wounding several people.
