At least 25 people were killed in a suicide attack at a mosque in Pakistan on Friday. Reports state than more than 30 have been injured in the blast.

Many have been wounded in the suicide attack, which targeted people praying at a mosque in a tribal area in Pakistan, according to a regional officer.

A second regional official confirmed the bombing in the village of Payee Khan, in the troubled Mohmand region of the lawless Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) bordering Afghanistan.

"The suicide bomber was in crowded mosque, he shouted 'Allahu Akbar', and then there was a huge blast," Naveed Akbar, deputy administrator of the Mohmand Agency district, told Reuters.

"Many people were gathered inside the mosque where a suicide bomber blew himself up," haukat Khan, another official in the northwestern FATA region said.

No one has claimed responsibility for the attack yet. 

The attack came a day after a woman was killed by a grenade blast in Lower Mohmand Agency after militants attacked a pro-government tribal elder's home.
