The minister said that around 25 people were injured in the blast and they were shifted to different hospitals.

"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.

"A suicide bomber blew himself up after he was intercepted by police guards on duty outside the shrine, killing 18 people including three children under the age of 12 and two policemen, and wounding at least 27 others, 14 of them seriously", provincial home secretary Akbar Harifal told a news agency.

Rescue officials fear the death toll could rise as the blast occured when the shrine was witnessing a heavy rush of devotees on Thursday, when devotees gather at the shrine of the revered Sufi saint to participate in a Sufi dance called dhamal and prayers. The injured are being transferred to DHQ hospital for treatment.

The attack follows a deadly bomb blast at the same shrine in the oil and gas rich Balochistan province in 2005, which killed 35 people.

Sarfraz Bugto, the provincial home minister, said "terrorists have shown their inhumaneness by attacking innocent civilians".

He said the incident took place after a suicide bomber was attempting to make his way into the shrine but was identified by the security forces.

The local administration also declared an emergency at hospitals in Sibbi and Dera Murad Jamali.
