In Pakistan, a suicide bomber blew himself up near Balochistan Assembly yesterday, killing 7 persons including four policemen and injuring 23 others.
The suicide bomber on a bike hit a Frontier Constabulary truck in Quetta’s Zarghoon road in the high-security Red Zone, around 300 metres from the provincial Assembly building and chief minister secretariat. The incident took place hours after
provincial Chief Minister resigned from his post due to political instability. Officials said, Police and rescue teams have cordoned off the area. They said, the number of casualties may go up as the rescue operation was still on.
The banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has claimed responsibility for the attack.
