10 killed in terror attacks in Pakistan

Bomb attack in Pakistan 7 police killed

A vehicle bomb attack struck a Pakistani police truck in the southwestern city of Quetta on Wednesday, killing at least five policemen and two civilians.

The bomb went off as a truck carrying 35 police personnel was passing the area. The nature of blast is yet to be ascertained.

Talking to media, Balochistan Home Minister Mir Sarfraz Bugti said that such terrorist attack could not shake the resolve of eliminating the militants.

Dead bodies and the injured were rushed to the Civil Hospital in Quetta and the site of the explosion was cordoned off by security forces soon after the blast. Afterward, he said such attacks would not bring down the morale of the security forces.

The Tahreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has claimed responsibility for the suicide attack on the security forces.

The minister said that 21 others were injured in the attack on Sariab Road near Darakhshan Railway Phaatak, while a police official put the number of wounded at 25.

"It appears that 80 kilograms of explosives were used in the attack", Cheema said.

In the drive-by shooting, two men on a motorcycle shot and killed police inspector Abdus Salam as he was on his way to work.

"The war against terrorism is not over. Balochistan is on the forefront of this fight and we will not stop until there is not a single terrorist left in the area", the home minister added.

Balochistan has experienced incidents of violence and targeted killings for over a decade.

Earlier in June, 14 people - including seven policemen - lost their lives in a suicide blast that shook Shuhada Chowk in Quetta's Gulistan Road area. PM Abbasi expressed deep grief and sorrow over the loss of precious lives during the terrorist attack.

Chief Minister of Balochistan Sanaullah Khan Zehri condemned the attack and called for the best possible medical treatment to the injured.
