52 people were murdered and over 50 injured in a suicide bombing in Balochistan, Pakistan.
In a bomb in Pakistan’s Balochistan region, at least 52 people were killed, including a top police official, and more than 50 others were injured.
In Pakistan’s Balochistan region on Friday, a suicide assault on a religious gathering resulted in at least 52 fatalities and more than 50 injuries.
Near a mosque in Balochistan’s Mastung area, where people had gathered to commemorate the Prophet Muhammad’s birth day, a powerful explosion occurred.
The explosion was described as “massive” by Atta Ul Munim, an assistant commissioner in Mastung.
One of the victims of the explosion is also a deputy superintendent of police (DSP).
The district government claims that DSP Nawaz Gashkori of Mastung is one of the victims. He was on duty since there was going to be a religious gathering nearby.
No one has taken ownership of the explosion. In a statement, the Pakistani Taliban (TTP) denied any participation.
This was the second significant explosion in the Mastung neighborhood this month. A bomb earlier this month injured numerous individuals, including Hafiz Hamdullah, the leader of Jamiat Ulema-e Islam Fazl (JUI-F).
