Ten dead, dozens wounded in blast inside 'Lal Shehbaz Qalandar' shrine

Darrell Mcdonald | 17 February, 2017, 00:47

There are conflicting reports about casualties. Taluka Hospital Medical Superintendent Moinuddin Siddiqui said 72 bodies and scores of injured were brought to the hospital.

They say the suicide bomber walked through a gold plated door and entered the main hall of the shrine of Lal Shahbaz Qalandar before setting off his payload amid a gathering of worshippers.

The explosion took place within the premises of the shrine at the spot where the dhamaal (Sufi ritual) was being performed, according to Dawn News.

This is the seventh terrorist strike in Pakistan since Monday.

The Governor also directed the district administration and the rescue organizations to speed up the rescue work and shift the injured to the hospitals.

Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif denounced the attack and called on all Pakistanis to unite in the face of terrorist attacks that have rocked the country over the past week.

People traditionally gather at the shrine on Thursday evenings to pay their respects to Lal Shahbaz Qalandar, a 12th century Sufi philosopher-poet of present-day Afghanistan and Pakistan. "We shall defend and respond". "No more restraint for anyone", he added the military chief as stating.

Murad Ali Shaf, chief minister of Sindh Province, told NBC News that hundreds of people were at the service when the attacker detonated the bomb.

At least 30 people have been killed by a bombing at a shrine in Pakistan in the latest terror attack launched in a week of bloodshed sweeping the country. ISIS has carried out near-daily attacks in the capital after suffering setbacks in Mosul.

Pakistani authorities claim militants launch attacks from Afghanistan, where the government and worldwide troops are fighting to oust al-Qaeda and the Taliban in the continuing war. Six people were killed in total.

"According to information, dozens of people have been injured in the blast", he said.
