Lahore: At least 100 people died and over 250 injured when a suicide bomber blew himself near a shrine of Sufi saint Lal Shahbaz Qalandarin in Southern Pakistan on Thursday.

The blast went off near the Shrine of Lal Shahbaz Qalandar in the town of Sehwan in Sindhu province.

The explosion happened when hundreds of devotees were performing Dhamal - a Sufi ritual.

Ambulances were put into work for the rescue operations and rushing the people injured to nearby hospitals.

Meanwhile, local media reported that death toll may rise due to non-availability of adequate ambulances at the shrine. ISIS has claimed the responsibility of the attack.

The Europeon Union (EU), United Nations (UN) and United States (US) have condemned the deadly attack.
