Balochistan: At least 7 dead, several injured in blast near Mastung mosque – SUCH TV



At least seven people were killed, including a police officer, while more than 25 sustained injuries in a blast that took place in Balochistan’s Mastung on Friday.

An official said that the explosion took place near the mosque where people were gathering to mark Eid Miladun Nabi.

Station House Officer (SHO) Javed Lehri said that the wounded are being shifted to a medical facility while an emergency has been imposed in the hospitals.

Mastung Assistant Commissioner Atta Ul Munim said that the explosion — which seems to be of a “massive” nature — took place near Madina Mosque. He said that the people had to participate in a procession later.

According to the district administration, Mastung’s Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Nawaz Gashkori is among the deceased.

“Some of the injured are in critical condition,” the administration added.
