A powerful blast in Balochistan 7 people injured
My Times today.
A powerful blast at a mosque in Pakistan’s troubled Balochistan province’s Chaman area on Wednesday injured at least seven people, including the prayer leader, according to police.
The blast occurred at the time of evening prayers in the mosque, which is located on Taj Road in Chaman, bordering Afghanistan.
Authorities have cordoned off the site of the explosion.
Security was tightened on Wednesday across the country to avert any tragedy on the occasion of the Eid Milad-un Nabi, marking the birth anniversary of the Prophet.
Mobile phone services were shut down in major cities to prevent terror attacks during the celebrations, in the wake of a suicide attack in neighbouring Afghanistan on Tuesday that killed over 50 people, mostly clerics.
