Chaman: The death toll due to a bomb blast during a pro-Palestinian rally in Pakistan's Chaman city on Friday has touched seven, media reports said.

The blast left 14 people injured.

Senior local police official Ahmad Mohiuddin told Geo News explosives were packed into a motorbike parked near the vehicle of a religious leader taking part in the rally.

"It was an improvised explosive device which went off as participants began to disperse," Tariq Mengal, a senior local administration official, told the news channel.

No group has claimed responsibility for the incident so far.

As per Dawn News, three Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam (Nazaryati) leaders were killed in the blast.

JUI-N’s naib emir Maulana Abdul Qadir Luni, who according to officials was the target of the attackers, suffered injuries in the bombing, reports the Pakistani newspaper.
