Karachi : A suicide bomber has killed nothing less than 16 people and wounded more than 20 at a mosque in North West Pakistan, said several reports.

A suicide bomber screamed "Allahu Akbar" and detonated himself while people were offering their Friday prayers in a packed mosque in a northwestern Pakistan.

"The suicide bomber was in crowded mosque, he shouted 'Allahu Akbar' (God is greatest) and then there was a huge blast," Naveed Akbar, deputy administrator of Mohmand agency, told Reuters.

Pakistan's frontier regions, which are deeply conservative and hard to access due to rough terrain, have long been the sanctuary of fighters from al Qaeda, the Taliban and other Islamist groups.
