The explosion that wounded more than a dozen people, occurred at a mosque on the outskirts of Balochistan province's capital, Quetta during Friday prayers. The bomb was remotely detonated , according to a police official.
The explosion occurred due to the accumulation of methane gas inside the coal mine in Marwaarh, 45 kilometres east of Quetta, which is the capital of Balochistan province, officials said.
Officials say two gunmen stormed into the Bethel Memorial Methodist Church in Quetta city when Sunday services had just opened, exploding a bomb and shooting at the worshippers.
