More than 40 people have been killed in a suspected suicide attack at a mosque in Pakistan.

The blast ripped through the building in Jamrud in the northwestern Khyber tribal district where hundreds had gathered for Friday prayers.

The country’s deadliest attack in three months also injured over 100 people. There was no immediate claim of responsibility.

Pakistan has seen a wave of violence in recent years, leaving thousands dead. There have been several bomb attacks since US special forces killed Osama bin Laden in a Pakistani town in May. Al Qaeda-linked militants have vowed to avenge his death.
