Unknown terrorists attacked Pakistan’s Rehmani and Afghanistan’s Isteghfar mosques around Friday prayers, killing four worshippers, including one of the religious clerics, and injuring 35 others during Ramadan, the ongoing holiest month for Muslims.

“Those who make innocent people the target of terrorism in this blessed month and on this blessed day deserve a severe punishment,” Jam Kamal Khan Alyani, the chief minister of Pakistan’s largest province of Balochistan, told Pakistan’s Dawn.
