At least 19 Shia Muslim pilgrims have been killed by a bomb attack on a bus convoy in southwest Pakistan today.

More than 20 people have been injured in the incident in the Mastung district of Baluchistan province, and it is reported that the death toll may rise.

No group has yet said it carried out today's bombing, and according to a government official, it had been a suicide attack.

The bus convoy had reportedly been on their way to neighbouring Iran, a Shia-majority country and popular pilgrimage destination.

Last month 23 Shia Muslims were killed by a bomb in the city of Rawalpindi.
