ISLAMABAD (RockedBuzz via Reuters) – Pakistani police have identified the suicide bomber who attacked a mosque in Peshawar this week, the provincial police chief said on Thursday, adding that the attacker violated security by wearing a police uniform.

The attack, which took place on Monday in a heavily fortified area called Police Lines, killed more than 100 people, all but three of them police.
