10 killed in blast near mosque

ISLAMABAD: A bomb exploded among worshippers streaming toward a Shia mosque in central Pakistan on Thursday, killing 10 people and wounding 30 others, officials said.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the blast in the city of Dera Ghazi Khan. The bomb went off as a crowd approached the mosque for an evening prayer ceremony. Television footage showed bystanders and emergency workers trying frantically to help victims lying on the street.

Hasan Iqbal, the city’s top administrator, said the bomb was apparently detonated by remote control and targeted the Shia procession. — AP
