Pakistan mosques under attack

Suspected Taliban fighters attack mosques, killing scores in towns near Peshawar.

    At least 71 people have been killed in northwest Pakistan after two mosques were targeted by suspected Taliban fighters.

    The first attack happened as Friday prayers ended and a man blew himself up in Darra Adam Khel, leaving 66 dead. Later just outside Peshawar, grenades were thrown into a mosque killing five people and wounding eleven.
