President condemns Jhal Magsi terrorist attack

Since 2016, however, it has been facing a growing threat of attacks from ISIL, which has claimed responsibility for several suicide attacks, particularly those targeting Sufi shrines such as the one attacked on Thursday.

"The suicide bomber struck outside the shrine at a time when it was packed with people, attending anniversary celebrations of Syed Cheesal Shah", Kakar said, referring to a local saint.

Anwarul Haq Kakar, the spokesman for the, says the attack took place on Thursday in Jhal Magsi, AP reports.

"A suicide bomber blew himself up after he was intercepted by police guards on duty outside the shrine, killing 13 people and wounding at least 20 others", senior local administration official Asad Kakar told AFP.

Sarfraz Bugti, the provincial home minister, said "terrorists have shown their inhumaneness by attacking innocent civilians" at the shrine.

In February, a suicide bomber had killed more than 80 people and injured 250 others in an attack on the shrine of Lal Shahbaz Qalandar in Sehwan Sharif in Sindh. The injured were transferred to DHQ hospital for treatment.

Meanwhile, Balochistan Home Minister said that he has instructed concerned authorities to respond immediately.

Security forces reached the shrine soon after the explosion and had established a cordon around it.

The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the attack in a statement posted on the Islamic State-linked Aamaq news agency.

Health officials fear a sharp rise in the death toll since dozens of injured were said to be in critical condition.

In November a year ago, at least 52 people were killed in a bombing at a shrine in the Hub district south of Jhal Magsi.
