Bombings at two mosques kill 13 in Pakistan

PESHAWAR, Pakistan — In what officials called the first major terrorist attack since last week’s general elections, at least 13 people were killed and 30 injured when two bombs ripped through two separate mosques Friday in a remote mountainous village in northwestern Pakistan.

The twin bombings, triggered by remote-controlled devices, targeted mosques in Baz Darra village in the Malakand region of the restive Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Province, said Abdullah Mashal, a senior government official. ‘‘Both explosions took place in two mosques, barely 100 feet apart.’’
