An explosion at a religious seminary in Pakistans northern city of Peshawar has killed at least eight people and injured 136 others.
The deadly blast took place at about 8.30 am at the Jamia Zuberia religious school in Dir Colony, where about 500 students were gathered to hear a lecture by influential cleric Rahimullah Haqqani. Most of them were between 20 and 30 years old and from the Khyber Pakthunkwa and Balochistan regions of Pakistan, as well as some from Afghanistan.
A police superintendent, Waqar Azeem Kharal, said the explosion had been caused by at least five kilograms of high-quality explosives brought into the lecture hall in a bag. Kharal said that ball bearings were also used in the explosives.
Peshawar is the provincial capital of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, bordering Afghanistan. The province has been the scene of several militant attacks in recent years, but sectarian violence has also killed or wounded people at mosques or seminaries across Pakistan. Some of the attacks have been claimed by the Pakistani Taliban.
