[Failed Suicide-Bomber’s Undelivered Package…NOT Ball Bearings, 1/2″ Nuts.]

SHIKARPUR: At least 13 people, including five cops, were injured as police foiled two separate suicide blasts during Eid prayers in Shikarpur’s Khanpur tehsil on Monday.

Police sources said four suicide attackers infiltrated Khanpur during Eid prayers.

Two of the attackers targeted an Eid prayer ground where one assailant blew himself up, injuring 10 people, two of whom were policemen. The other attacker fled, police sources said.

Two other attackers targeted an imambargah but were stopped by police at the entrance on account of appearing suspicious. One of the attackers blew himself up after he was stopped by guards for a search, whereas the other was arrested, police said.

Police officer Bahardin Kerio said the second attacker, a would-be suicide bomber, was shot and wounded at the scene, after which the officers arrested him.

Three police officers were wounded in the explosion. Kerio said one of the wounded officers was in critical condition.

He added that there were hundreds of worshippers inside the imambargah at the time.

Those injured in the blast have been admitted to hospitals in Shikarpur for treatment.

No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.
