A suicide bomber was killed by security forces as he attempted to enter Shia Mosque where over 500 faithful had congregated for Eid prayers.
The suicide bomber was killed and the other one injured by the security forces as they tried to strike an Eid al-Adha congregation in southern Pakistan, police reported Tuesday.
“The bombers were intercepted by the police deputed for the security [of the mosque] propelling one to detonate his explosive-laden vest, while his accomplice was successfully tackled by police and citizens before he could blow himself up,” A.D Khawaja, police chief of the Sindh province told reporters.
Three security forces were also injured in the botched attack, the police boss added.
This was the second attack on a Shia mosque in Shikarpur in less than two years.
