On May 17, 2013, a blast happened in Pakistan. Two mosques in the Baazdara area of northwestern Malakand region were attacked. According to the senior local administration official Amjad Ali Khan, at least 13 people got were killed and 48 people got wounded. “Also, eight of the injured people are in a critical condition” He added.
Since mountainous area has no mobile phone coverage, the information was slow to filter through from the far-flung. Not like the bombs - they were detonated by remote control.
"One blast took place inside a mosque and the second one occurred at the main gate of the second mosque," Imran Khan, who is an Administration official, said to the AFP.
Survivors told AFP that the bombs exploded as people were leaving the mosques at the end of the weekly Friday sermon. Iqtidar Khan, 28, said he sustained head injuries. "I came out of mosque after saying prayers when something pulled me with full force," he told AFP by telephone from hospital after the attack. "A piece of brick hit my head after a big bang. I could see nothing but smoke and blood on the stairs of the mosque," he added. He said the front gate and the roof on the veranda of the mosque were destroyed by the blasts.
