Following heavy rains in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan, 8 people, including children, lost their lives, and 12 others were injured.

Foreign media, citing Pakistani officials, reported on Sunday, March 31st, that the majority of casualties from the severe rainfall in northwest Pakistan were children.

According to Anwar Shehzad, a spokesperson for the local disaster management authority, the rain in various districts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province caused the collapse of rooms and residential houses, resulting in the death of eight individuals.

Authorities in the country say that among the victims, three of them were members of one family aged between one to seven years old. Shehzad said, “Three of the deceased are siblings aged between 3 to 7 years old.”

In addition to the natural disasters, Pakistan has been facing significant security challenges, with recent attacks targeting civilians and security forces.

Just last week, a suicide bombing in a crowded market in Peshawar claimed several lives and left many injured. These attacks highlight the ongoing insecurity in various parts of the country, posing threats to both civilians and law enforcement agencies.

Despite efforts by the Pakistani government and security forces to combat terrorism, the frequency of such incidents underscores the persistent challenges facing the nation in maintaining stability and protecting its citizens.
