20 persons killed in suicide bombing on the shrine of Pir Rakhel Shah in Balochistan

At least 20 persons, including a Police constable, were killed and more than 30 injured on October 5 when a suicide bomber struck outside the Dargah (shrine) of Pir Rakhel Shah in Gandawa area of Fatehpur, a small town in the Jhal Magsi District of Balochistan, where anniversary celebrations was going on, reports Dawn. The deceased include at least three children. District Police Officer Mohammad Iqbal said the suicide bomber had tried to enter the shrine but a Police constable on security duty stopped him, after which the attacker detonated his explosives. Initial reports suggested that the explosion took place when the dhamaal a devotional dance performed at shrines was being performed after evening prayers. Balochistan Home Minister Sarfaraz Bugti said that "if he [the attacker] had managed to enter the Dargah, the death toll would have been much higher."
