A Pakistani police spokesman announced on Thursday that the suicide bomber who killed 101 people at a mosque inside a police station in Peshawar, Pakistan was wearing a police uniform because he was wearing a police uniform (…). failure (in the area of) security”. He confirmed that the police had a “very accurate idea” of his identity by comparing his head, found at the scene of the explosion, with images from security cameras. Ansari added that “there is a whole network behind it,” explaining that Monday’s attack was not planned by one person.
On Monday afternoon, hundreds of police officers were praying at a mosque on their property when an explosion occurred, destroying a wall and crushing the officers.
Authorities are investigating how the security breach occurred in the area, which is one of the most controlled in the city because it includes intelligence and counter-terrorism departments and is located next to the regional general secretariat. The attack is the most brutal in Pakistan in several years and the most serious since the escalation of violence in the region after the Taliban took control of Afghanistan in 2021.
