Pakistan is celebrating its Independence Day Sunday. On the day when the country is celebrating its 64th Independence Day, Pakistan's restive Balochistan province was rocked by a bomb blast, and the persisting violence which left five people dead and injured dozens.

The bomb blast took place in the ground floor of a road side hotel in Dera Allah Yar city in the Southern West province, reported the Dailymail.

In the blast, the hotel was damaged heavily, while shops and nearby buildings got affected too. The witnesses said that the explosion was so powerful that it could be heard from kilometers away.

No group so far has claimed the responsibility for the blast.

Pakistan's Independence Day (also known as Yom-e-Azaadi) is celebrated on Aug 14, the day before Pakistan was made an independent country based on border lines created by the British during the end of their rule of India.

Pakistan became independent in 1947.
