Pakistan: Bomb blast in a madrasa in Peshawar, 7 students killed, more than 50 injured
Peshawar: Seven students have died in a bomb blast on a Quran class at a religious school in Manglaver in the northwestern region of Pakistan. An official said many more people were injured in the blast. Waqar Azim, a senior police officer, said the blast occurred at a madrasa in Peshawar, 170 km from Islamabad. At that time there are more than 60 people taking classes.

Waqar Ajam said, 'The explosion occurred during a section in the Quran. Somebody came inside with the goods of the madrasa He told that whoever had brought the bag left the lecture hall before the explosion. Another senior police officer Mohammad Ali Gandapur said that at least seven people were killed and more than 50 people were injured in the attack.

Mohammad Asim Khan, a spokesman for the local hospital, confirmed the death toll. He also informed that seven bodies and 70 injured people have been brought to the hospital. "Most of those who have been killed, or injured, have suffered injuries from ball bearings and some have been badly burned," he said. Aseem Khan said that the dead students are aged between 20 and 40. Those injured include teachers and students up to 7 years old.

No terrorist organization has claimed responsibility for the blast yet. After several months of relatively peaceful peace in Pakistan, such an incident has surfaced again. Peshawar was once the center of terrorist activities there. In this area bordering Afghanistan's northwest, jihadist organizations often targeted security forces and public spaces.

Over the years, terrorist violence has decreased due to the conduct of military operations on the borders in Pakistan, but terrorist organizations are sometimes able to carry out such deadly attacks.
