Pakistan: Powerful blast kills 15 including 8 soldiers

WEB DESK /AMN

A powerful blast targeting a military truck today killed at least 15 people, including eight soldiers, and injured over two dozen others in Pakistan’s southwestern restive province of Balochistan. The injured also included around 10 soldiers who were in the truck. The high intensity blast occurred in a parking lot near Pishin bus stop which is in a high security area in the provincial capital Quetta.

Baluchistan’s Home Minister Mir Sarfaraz Bugti told media that a truck of the Frontier Corps was targeted in the blast. He said, the bomb disposal squad has reached the spot and will be able to confirm soon whether it was a suicide attack or a planted bomb. Bugti said, around 30 injured persons were shifted to the Civil hospital for treatment and admitted that the condition of six to seven people was critical.

The blast was so loud that it was heard in far off areas and caused a huge fire in which some vehicles and auto rickshaws were also damaged.

Quetta, the capital city of the restive Baluchistan province, has witnessed several terrorist attacks recently by militants and separatists while banned outfits have also carried out sectarian killings in the province.
