Bombing Targets Pakistani Security Forces, Killing At Least Seven

10 killed in terror attacks in Pakistan

Security sources said a roadside bomb exploded just as the police vehicle carrying 35 police personnel passed the Sariab Mill area on the Quetta-Sibbi Road.

The nature of the blast has 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.

Hospital authorities stated that seven dead bodies had been brought to the hospital, three of which belonged to police officials and the remaining 22 injured people were also shifted to the Civil Hospital.

Security forces have reached the location and cordoned off the area, and a security sweep is underway, it said.

A local commander of the Pakistani Taliban, Sharyar Mahsud, was quoted as saying that his men were responsible for the attack in Bannu district. Rescue teams transferred the injured to the nearby Civil Hospital and Combined Military Hospital (CMH) where an emergency was declared.


"We can not yet say that this is a suicide attack, our teams are in research and investigations at scene", Cheema said.

Baloshistan has witnessed several blasts and targeted killings in the past few months. "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 said.

Violence has declined in Pakistan after the army conducted a series of offensives against Islamist militants since 2014, however the groups still possess the capability to launch surprise attacks on security forces and civilian targets.

Quetta's deputy police inspector general, Razzaq Cheema, explained that before the attack they had information about plans by extremist groups.

Chief Minister of Balochistan Sanaullah Khan Zehri condemned the attack and called for the best possible medical treatment to the injured. PM Abbasi expressed deep grief and sorrow over the loss of precious lives during the terrorist attack.
