At least 14 people were killed and 25 others were wounded during a suicide bombing at a Shiite mosque in Peshawar, Pakistan, according to a senior police official.

Shafiullah Khan told CNN the bomber shot and killed a guard at the entrance to the mosque then entered the main hall where he blew himself up while the victims were praying. The wounded were taken to Lady Reading hospital.

Friday prayers is the main gathering of the week for Muslims.

    During the past 11 yrs of war on terror that country has been split wide open to terrorism, extremism and violence with no end in sight.
    Tens of thousands of innocent lives have been extinguished while their military alongside us wages war against AlQaeda & Taliban.

    Seriously? It has become more than obvious that these people are living exactly how they want to live as this IS a way of life in Pakistan. Let them do what comes natural to them and stay out of it! It is high time the US starts minding their own business and quit foisting our beliefs on every other country! No wonder we are so disliked around the world.and its not as if we have all our ducks in a row anyway. And MOST importantly, we need to STOP ALL foreign aid! We are in debt up to our eyeballs and cant take care of our children and seniors in this country so our government has no business sending OUR tax dollars to everyone else! Those things SHOULD be voted on by the US citizens as they are the ones that are ultimately footing the bills!

    The more I track news from Islamic states, the more I am convinced Islam is responsible for human tragedies such as terrorism and death.
