One killed, 12 injured in Quetta bomb attack
Islamabad, Aug 21 (ANI): A civilian was killed and 12 others, including three children, were injured when a car bomb targeted a paramilitary convoy in Quetta on Tuesday, officials have said.
"The militants targeted two vehicles of Frontier Corps (FC) but the remote-control device exploded after our convoy had passed the parked car," The Express Tribune quoted FC spokesman, Murtaza Baig, as saying.
Police and security forces are frequently attacked in the insurgency-plagued Balochistan province, of which Quetta is the capital.
"The victims of the blast were all civilians who were passing from the area. The toll includes one man killed and 12 others wounded including two women and three children," said senior police official Wazir Khan.
There has been no claim of responsibility for the attack so far. (ANI)
