The death toll from a suicide attack on a Shiite mosque in the northwestern Pakistani city of Peshawar on Friday rose to 56, a local hospital official announced.  "In total, 56 people were killed and 194 injured. Among the wounded, 50 are in critical condition," said Mohammad Asim Khan, a spokesman for Peshawar's Lady Reading Hospital.  Peshawar Police Chief Muhammad Ijaz Khan said the violence began when two armed assailants opened fire on police outside the mosque in Peshawar's old city. An assailant and a policeman were killed in the clash and another police official was wounded, then the remaining attacker ran into the mosque and detonated a bomb.  Local police official Wahid Khan said the blast occurred while worshipers were gathering at the Kucha Risaldar mosque for Friday prayers. He added that the death toll is likely to rise because many of the wounded are in critical condition.  Ambulances rushed through the crowded narrow streets and took the wounded to Lady Reading Hospital, where doctors worked hard to save the injured.  No one immediately claimed responsibility for the blast, which Prime Minister Imran Khan condemned. Pakistan has witnessed in recent months a significant increase in violence and dozens of soldiers were killed in dozens of attacks on army positions along the border with Afghanistan.

Xinjiang Normal University lecturer Nurmamet Omar sparks 10-year sentence  Nurmamet Omar Uchkun, the author of the "Open Your Eyes, Find Yourself Men" article and translated the American strategy program "Big Chessboard" in Uyghur, has been sentenced to 10 years in prison and is currently serving his sentence in Kyrenia Prison.  In response, Nurmemet Omar Uchkun, a literature teacher at the School of Philology at Xinjiang Normal University, was sentenced to 10 years in prison on charges of "marginalizing national culture" and "attempting to divide the country." The information was obtained by Mr. Hussainjan, a classmate of Nurmamet Omar Uchkun, who is currently living in Norway.  Nurmamet Omar Uchkun, who has been well-educated in various fields such as literature, translation, research and computer science and has been delivering outstanding fruits to the Uyghur community in these fields, was reportedly abducted in early 2018. It was unknown at this time what he would do after leaving the post. After it was revealed that he was in captivity, Mr. Hussainjan, through his relevant channels, was constantly informed about the consequences of the spate and was also informed that he was serving his sentence in Kerry Prison.  The staff of the University of Pedagogy, who answered our call again, refrained from answering our questions about the condition of Nurmemet Omar Spark.  According to online archives, Nurmamet Omar Uchkun, from Hotan Karakash, graduated from Xinjiang University's Faculty of Letters in 2009 and joined Xinjiang Normal University that year. From 2011 to 2015, he studied for a doctorate at Shanghai Huadong Normal University and was re-employed at Xinjiang Normal University. In addition to teaching and learning, he has also contributed to scientific research, literary creation, and translation, and has made significant contributions to Uyghur society. His article, "Open Your Eyes, Find Yourself Men," evoked a sense of national awakening in society, while his translation book, The Great Chessboard, called on society to be politically sensitive.  Relevant officials in Urumqi have repeatedly refused to comment on Nurmamet Omar's spark. Mr Hussainjan said Nurmamet Omar Uchkun had been detained by Urumqi police and handed over to Hotan police for some time, after which he was sentenced to 10 years in prison. Mr. Hussainjan also said that the case of Nurmamet Omar Spark was likely to be clear from the Karakash County Yavag Rural Police Station, where his parents live. Nurmamet's parents, who answered our call, confirmed that Nurmamet, the village secretary, had been sentenced to 10 years in prison and was currently serving a sentence in Kyrenia Prison.  Dear Radio Listeners, Nurmamet Omar Uchkun has also been a guest editor of Xinjiang Culture Magazine, one of the most prestigious magazines in the Uyghur region. Mr. Kurban Mamut, a well-known editor of the magazine, was also abducted after 2017 and the consequences are still unknown. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.
