DSP among 15 killed

Although earlier report suggested that the blast in Quetta mosque killed 14, latest reports termed that suicide bombing.

The powerful explosion ripped through the mosque in southwest Pakistan during Friday evening prayers.

The martyrs include DSP Amanullah who had lost his son in a blast.

However, AP reported bombing also wounded 11 other worshipers in the city of Quetta, the capital of the restive Baluchistan province, said local police chief Mohammad Ajmal.

The slain police officer was the likely target of the attack, but authorities were still investigating, Ajmal said. Both he and hospital officials said the death toll from the bombing could rise as some of the wounded were in critical condition.

Speculations had it the blast hit Taliban meeting but the Taliban rebuffed it.
