Suicide bomber kills 11 outside Pakistani mosque - The Long War Journal
A suicide bomber killed 11 people in a parking lot outside a Shia mosque in Quetta, the provincial capital of Pakistan’s Baluchistan province. The attack is the latest to take place at a mosque in Pakistan.
The suicide bomber entered a parking lot adjacent to the mosque and attempted to hit the building as worshipers were leaving a service commemorating the end of Ramadan. The bomber detonated in the parking lot after he was unable to reach the mosque, killing 11 people, including two women and a child.
Police said the corpse of the suicide bomber was seen in the wreckage of the car.
“Remains of a badly mutilated body were found in the car. It appears that he was not wearing the explosives on his body but he had planted those in the car and detonated when he could not go beyond the parking lot,” Quetta police chief Ahsan Mehboob told AFP.
