Two people were killed and 15 others injured in a blast inside a mosque in Pakistan's Quetta city during the Friday prayers.

The explosion took place in the Rehmania mosque located in the city's Pashtoonabad area, reports Dawn news.

No one has claimed responsibility for the incident yet.

Balochistan Chief Minister Jam Kamal Khan Alyani condemned the blast and ordered a report on the incident.

This is the fifth attack in Balochistan since the beginning of Ramazan.

Less than a week later, 14 passengers were off-loaded from a passenger bus on the Makran Coastal Highway and shot dead by unidentified assailants.

On May 9, a tribal elder and two others were killed in a blast in Qilla Abdullah, and on May 10, two coal miners and three Frontier Corps personnel died in a blast in Khost.

On April 12, 20 people were killed and 48 others injured in the Hazarganji market blast targeting Quetta's Hazara community.
