"The suicide bomber struck outside the shrine at a time when it was packed with people, attending anniversary celebrations of Syed Cheesal Shah", Kakar said.

The attack took place at Dargah Fatehpur in the Jhal Magsi district of the oil and gas rich Balochistan province, bordering Iran and Afghanistan.

Kakar added later that 13 people had been killed, and 20 others were seriously injured.

In February, a suicide bomber had killed more than 80 people and injured 250 others in an attack on the shrine of Lal Shahbaz Qalandar in Sehwan Sharif in Sindh.

Provincial home minister Sarfaraz Bugti also confirmed the toll.

The shrine is located four kilometres away from the city and the nearest hospital in the area can only accommodate 12 people, so the rescue teams are shifting the injured people to hospital in neighbouring districts.

Dr Rukhsana Magsi at the Gandawah hospital in Jhal Magsi, about 400 kms east of Quetta, the capital of Baluchistan province, confirmed 15 bodies were brought to the hospital.

Hundreds of devotees were present at the shrine for a monthly gathering when the bomber hit.
