Authorities say the attacker detonated himself in the middle of a crowd that had gathered near a mosque to take part in a procession celebrating the birthday of the Prophet Muhammad. “The suicide bomber blew himself up inside the procession to cause maximum damage”.
Shortly after the explosion in Balochistan province, in southwestern Pakistan, another bombing was carried out at a mosque in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, in the country’s northwest. At least five people were killed in the second attack.
At the hospital in Quetta, the largest city of Balochistan, the survivors who narrowly escaped death were grappling with the aftermath of the attack.
