At least 55 people have been killed in bombing attacks at two mosques in Pakistan. The first blast happened in Balochistan province, where a suicide bomber detonated explosives near a police vehicle. A deputy superintendent of police was among those killed. In the second attack, which took place in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, five people were killed at a mosque in a police compound. The roof collapsed, trapping many people under the rubble. So far, no group has claimed responsibility for the attacks. The death toll is expected to rise as many people are seriously injured and trapped. The bombings occurred during Friday prayer processions, and people were carrying flags and banners. The surge in militant attacks in Pakistan’s western provinces has raised concerns about election preparations and public campaigning. The caretaker Prime Minister, who is in Saudi Arabia for the religious pilgrimage, has condemned the blasts and called for support for the victims. The Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), responsible for previous attacks, denied involvement in these bombings. In July, the self-proclaimed Islamic State group claimed responsibility for a suicide bombing in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa that killed over 40 people.
