Bomb in Pakistani Mosque Kills 20

Muslims Killing Muslims in a Mosque ?
What a mess Pakistan is in, I feel they deserve it.
It is that whole Religion of peace, Intolerance of others, watch what you say and do or we will kill you thing.

PESHAWAR, Pakistan -- A suicide bomber, who was possibly targeting an anti-Taliban activist, attacked a mosque in northwest Pakistan during Friday prayers, killing at least 20 people and wounding 30 others, officials said.

The blast was the latest in a series of attacks to hit mosques and Sufi shrines in Pakistan, and underscored the relentless security challenge to a nation where Islamist militancy -- as well as enmity among the various Muslim sects -- have long run rampant.

The explosion occurred in Darra Adam Khel, an area near Pakistan's tribal regions where Taliban-led militants have been active. The bomber hit a Sunni Muslim mosque and the worshippers gathered there on Friday afternoon, the most attended prayer session of the week, authorities said.

"The mosque's roof has caved in. We fear there might be more casualties in the debris," said Saeed Khan, a local government official.
