Five people were killed, while more than 15 were injured in an explosion at a mosque in southeastern city Quetta in Pakistan on Friday.

According to police, among those killed in the incident was a mosque priest located 25 kilometers from Quetta city.

“The explosion involved a timepiece, which was placed under a wooden chair near the priest,” said Quetta police chief Abdul Razzaq Chmeea.

Quetta is the capital of the Balochistan region, which is currently in turmoil due to clashes between foreign insurgents and the military forces.

However, so far, no party has claimed responsibility for the incident.

As per sources, the explosive was placed beneath the carpet of Madrasa which was set off during Friday prayers.
