Police say bombings at two mosques in northwest Pakistan have killed at least 10 people.

Tribal police officer Badshah Rehman says the blasts Friday in Baz Darrah village in the Malakand district of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province also wounded over 30 people.

Rehman says the roof of one of the mosques collapsed following the explosion. The other mosque was also badly damaged. Rescue workers are trying to retrieve bodies from the rubble.

No one has claimed responsibility for the blasts, but suspicion will likely fall on the Pakistani Taliban.
