UN Condemns Deadly Mosque Attack In Pakistan

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and other high-ranking officials condemned Monday’s suicide bombing at a mosque in Peshawar, Pakistan, which killed at least 59 people and injured 150 more.

According to reports, a militant group claimed responsibility for the attack, which occurred at the crowded mosque.

Reports showed that the bombing caused the roof to collapse on top of the worshipers inside.

“It is particularly abhorrent that the attack occurred at a place of worship,” Guterres said in a statement issued by his spokeswoman, Stephanie Dujarric.

“Freedom of religion or belief, including the ability to worship in peace and security, is a universal human right.”

The UN Chief extended his condolences to the victims’ families and wished the injured a speedy recovery.
