59 Killed in Pakistan Mosque Blast: Police Targeted in Devastating Suicide Attack

At least 59 people were killed and many more injured in a suicide bombing at a mosque in Balochistan, Pakistan on Friday. Police were among the dead and the search for victims continues as rescue workers sift through the rubble.

The attack was claimed by the Pakistani Taliban, a militant group that has been waging an insurgency against the government for more than a decade. The group has been responsible for numerous attacks on security forces, religious minorities, and civilians.

The bombing marks the latest in a series of attacks by the Pakistani Taliban in recent weeks. In response, the government has vowed to take action against the group and has increased security in the region.

The attack has been condemned by leaders around the world, including the United Nations Secretary-General, who called it a “heinous act of terror”. The United Nations Security Council also issued a statement expressing its condolences to the victims and their families and calling for those responsible to be brought to justice.

The bombing has sparked outrage in Pakistan, with many protesting against the government’s failure to protect its citizens. The incident has also raised questions about the government’s ability to tackle the insurgency.

The attack has sent shockwaves through the region and beyond, and the world is watching to see what action the Pakistani government will take.
