How much of a security threat is the Pakistani Taliban?
Armed group blamed for killing dozens of people in an attack on a mosque in Peshawar.
Pakistan is mourning at least 100 people killed in a suicide bombing at a mosque in the northwestern city of Peshawar.

It took place in a highly fortified police compound.
