Ten people have been killed and 60 injured in a blast near a mosque in Peshawar, Pakistan.

Express News correspondent Yasir Ali said one of the blasts took place inside Imamia Masjid, shortly after the Friday prayers came to an end.

An eyewitness claimed six terrorists had entered the mosque and thrown grenades in addition to detonating a suicide vest.

Police were unable to confirm this.

The number of casualties is expected to increase.

The injured are being shifted to a hospital nearby, and the area has been cordoned.

Two weeks earlier on Friday, at least 60 people were killed and 60 others injured in an explosion inside a central imambargah in Sindh province's Shikarpur district.

The militant organisation Jundullah, a splinter group of Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan, had claimed responsibility for the terrorist attack.
