Mourning Observed Over Sehwan Sharif Blast

Three day mourning is being observed in Sindh over the tragic blast in Sehwan Sharif that claimed dozens of innocent lives and left many injured.

Police and personnel from other law enforcement agencies stood guard outside the Shrine which was closed for devotees after the blast.

However, a Shrine worker played the drum as part of tradition to open the shrine for devotees early this morning.

Meanwhile, funeral prayers of the martyred are being offered at their native localities.

On the instructions of the Chief Minister Sindh, an emergency cell has also been established at the CM house in Karachi to help the affected people.

Provincial disaster management authority Sindh has set up an information desk to provide assistance to the families of the blast victims.
