At Least 5 Killed, 20 Wounded in Suicide Attack in Pakistan

ISLAMABAD – At least five people were killed and another 20 were wounded on Saturday in a suicide bomb attack against a security forces vehicle in Quetta city in western Pakistan.

The suicide bomber had detonated near a bus terminal, when the Frontier Corps vehicle was passing by, Quetta police spokesperson Abid Mengal told EFE.

The wounded, that include several members of the security forces, have been taken to the hospital.

The country’s main Taliban group, Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan, claimed the attack in a statement that was sent by email to the media.

“We accept responsibility of the suicide attack on Saryab Road, Quetta,” TTP spokesperson Mohamed Khurasani said in the statement.

Quetta, capital of Baluchistan province, is among the most conflict-ridden areas in Pakistan, with armed separatists, Taliban factions and terrorist groups operating in the region.

Attacks against the security forces are common in the city and have intensified in recent weeks.

On Nov. 9, a senior police official of the city was killed in an attack and, six days later, a superintendent of police was shot dead, along with his wife, son and brother.

On Friday, two people were killed and another five were wounded in a suicide bomb attack against the vehicle of a senior police official in the city of Peshawar in northern Pakistan.
