Pakistan's Caretaker Prime Minister Mohammed Mian Soomro has condemned Friday's suicide attack on an Eid congregation in the country's northwestern province.

The official APP news agency quoted Soomro as saying that it was an unfortunate incident of terrorism in which a large number of innocent people lost their lives.

"The government is committed to fight extremism and terrorism in the country and will not let these elements succeed in their designs," he said in a message from Saudi Arabia, where he has gone to perform Hajj.

Early Friday, a suicide bomber blew up himself when former Interior Minister Aftab Sherpao and some 1,000 people were offering Eid prayers in a mosque in his home town Charsadda of the North West Frontier Province.

Sherpao survived the attack which killed over 50 people and injured some 100 others.

The interior ministry directed all the four provincial authorities to further beef up security across the country following the suicide attack in Charsadda.

The security across the country was already on high alert during the Eid and additional deployments were made at all places where Eid prayers were to be held.
