At least six persons, including four police personnel, were killed and 17 others injured on Tuesday when a suspected suicide blast rocked Quetta’s Zarghoon road near the Balochistan Assembly building in Pakistan.

The explosion took place near a police truck parked close to GPO Chowk on Zarghoon Road, located in the city’s high-security Red Zone, around 300 metres from the provincial assembly building.

DC Quetta Farrukh Ateeq confirmed that a police vehicle was targeted in the blast. However, he said he could not confirm the number of wounded persons.
