The Wider Image: Islamist militants have Pakistan's police in their crosshairs
Imam Noor ul Ameen, 35, who is also a police employee, holds his palms as he leads a prayer for the victims who were killed in a suicide bombing in January, in a mosque that was partially damaged during the attack in the Police Lines area, in Peshawar, Pakistan, February 9, 2023. Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), and organisation that targets Pakistan's military, claimed responsibility for the bombing of a mosque in Peshawar that killed over 80 police personnel. "The police have been told many times not to obstruct our way, and instead of paying heed to this the police have started martyring our comrades," said TTP spokesman Muhammad Khurasani. "This is why we are targeting them." REUTERS/Fayaz Aziz SEARCH "AZIZ PAKISTAN POLICE" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
