December 2009 Lower Dir mosque bombing

December 2009 Lower Dir mosque bombing was a suicide bombing just outside a mosque in the town of Timergara in Lower Dir in Pakistan on December 18, 2009.[1][2] Police said that the bomber had tried to enter the mosque during afternoon prayers but didn't succeed due to security measures. He then blew up his explosives-packed vehicle near the gate of the mosque.[3] At least 12 people were killed and 28 wounded in the attack. Most of the dead were policemen who were leaving the mosque after Friday prayers. The mosque is adjacent to the district police headquarters.[4]
