    (Reuters) - An explosion hit the Pakistani city of Parachinar, in the remote northwestern tribal region, on Friday, killing at least five people and wounding 40, Ikramullah Khan, the local political agent, said.

    Earlier this year, at least 21 people were killed when an explosion hit a vegetable market in Parachinar, near the border with Afghanistan.

    A blast has been reported at a market in Parachinar, TV channels reported on Friday.

    The blast reportedly took place in the crowded Noor market. The nature of the blast is unknown as yet. The market place is a busy area and has several shops. It is also near of the main imambargahs.

    Security forces have cordoned off the area while emergency services have been dispatched to the site. The political administration has declared emergency at all hospitals in the area.

    Initial reports suggested that at least 10 people have been injured in the explosion.

    The attack is reminiscent of a bombing at a market place early this year, which resulted in the death over at least 25 people. The January attack was claimed by Lashkar-i-Jhangvi al-Alami along with Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) splinter Shehryar Mehsud.

    Parachinar is 250 kilometres west of Peshawar and has a population of 50,000. In the wake of sectarian clashes in 2007 army and paramilitary forces set up several checkpoints on roads leading to the town.

    Kurram, the tribal region of which Parachinar is the main town, the only part of Pakistan's border region that has a significant Shia population, has been racked by sectarian violence.

    This is a developing story that is being updated as the situation evolves. Initial reports in the media can sometimes be inaccurate. We will strive to ensure timeliness and accuracy by relying on credible sources such as concerned, qualified authorities and our staff reporters.

    ‘Suicide blast’ near Imambargah in Parachinar kills 11, wounds over 100
    March 31, 2017
    PARACHINAR: An explosion outside an Imambargah in the centre of Parachinar, in the remote northwestern tribal region bordering Afghanistan, killed at least 11 people and wounded dozens, a member of parliament and the local political agent said.
    There was no immediate claim of responsibility but the blast, which occurred as people gathered for Friday prayers near the women´s entrance of the Imambargah in the central bazaar, follows a series of attacks this year.
    A parliamentarian from Parachinar, Sajid Hussain, said it was a suicide attack and was preceded by gunfire.
    "The attack took place in a busy area and a women´s mosque appears to be the target," he said.
    Last month, more than 70 people were killed and dozens wounded in an attack on a crowded shrine of Lal Shehbaz in Sehwan.
    In January, at least 21 people were killed when an explosion hit a vegetable market in Parachinar itself.
    An army official said rescue helicopters had been sent to the scene.
    Mumtaz Hussain, a doctor at the local Agency Headquarters Hospital, said five bodies, including a woman and two children, and more than three dozen wounded had been brought to the hospital and an appeal had been issued for blood donors.
    "Patients are being brought to us in private cars and ambulances and we have received over three dozen patients so far," Hussain told Reuters.
    Parachinar is the capital of the Kurram tribal region, where Pakistani security forces have battled militant groups for years. ‘Suicide blast’ near Imambargah in Parachinar kills 11, wounds over 100

    I don't understand the mentality of these monsters. That too in a mosque which is considered sacred and the people they are targeting are doing their ritual namaz.

    Be warned, Paksitanis be warned.

    Supreme court is about to announce its decision against Mian Nawaz Sharif and his supporter terrorist organisations and India can create a wave of terrorism in Pakistan. We just witnessed first shot. May Allah keep everybody safe but expect Nawaz Sharif doing this with the people of Pakistan - yet another time.

    Also expect India-Pakistan borders would go hot - yet another time.
