At least seven students have been  killed and scores more wounded in a bomb attack at a Qur’an study class at a Madrassa in northwestern Pakistan.

Waqar Azim, a senior police official told AFP, more than 60 people had been taking a lesson on Tuesday when the explosion tore through the madrassa in Peshawar, about 170 kilometres west of capital Islamabad adding that the person who had brought in the bag left the lecture hall before the blast.

“The blast took place in a seminary during a Koran class. Someone took a bag inside the seminary.”

Mohammad Asim Khan, a spokesman at a local hospital  told AFP that seven bodies and 70 wounded people had been taken to the facility.

“Most of those killed and injured were hit by the ball bearings and some were badly burnt.”

Khan says all of the dead were men aged between 20 and 40 while teachers and boys as young as 7 were among the wounded.
