“So far we can confirm 23 people killed including several pilgrims and security personal. Seven others are injured,” told Akbar Durrani, home secretary Balochistan.
“Four attackers including two gunmen and two suicide bombers attacked the restaurant in Taftan,” he added.
However, no group has yet come forward to claim the attack.
