Karachi: A suicide bomber attacked a crowded Sufi shrine in southern Pakistan on Thursday, killing at least 72 people and wounding dozens more in the deadliest wave of bombings across the country.

The Daesh group claimed responsibility for the attack, the group’s affiliated news agency AMAQ reported.

The bomber hit the crowd when the devotees were engaged in “dhamaal” inside the hall of the shrine, which is a usual ritual on Thursdays.

A police official in Sehwan said a suicide bomber entered the shrine through its Golden gate.

“The attacker blew himself up after throwing a grenade, which failed to explode,” he said.

Non-existence of adequate medical facilities in Sehwan added to the hardships of the wounded persons. The ambulances and doctors were dispatched to Sehwan from nearby Hyderabad and Nawabshah.
