Bomb at seminary in Pakistan kills 7 children, wounds 70

By Times Of India

A powerful bomb blast ripped through an Islamic seminary on the outskirts of the northwest Pakistani city of Peshawar on Tuesday morning, killing at least seven children and wounding 70 others, police and a hospital spokesman said.

The bombing happened while a cleric was delivering a lecture about the teachings of Islam at the main hall of the
Jamia Zubairia madrassa, said police officer Waqar Azim.

He said initial investigations suggest the bomb went off minutes after someone left a bag at the madrassa.
Several of the wounded were in critical condition, and hospital authorities feared the death toll could climb further.

Peshawar is the provincial capital of Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province bordering Afghanistan.
