Bomb attack in mosque in Pakistan: 30 people killed

Since the militant Islamist Taliban* took power in neighboring Afghanistan*, attacks in the border region have recently increased. In particular, the terrorist militia Islamic State (IS) and the Pakistani Taliban claim attacks for themselves. The border province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa was long considered a troubled region of Pakistan, but has long been quiet following a military offensive against Islamist terrorist groups in 2014.

In autumn 2020, many people were killed and more than 100 injured in a similar attack in a Koran school in Peshawar. At that time, the IS was suspected. Residents in Peshawar remember the attacks of the brutal attack by Pakistani Taliban, who killed more than 150 people* in a school in Peshawar in 2014, mostly children.
