New Desk February 16, 2017

At least three personnel, including a Pakistan Army captain, were killed as a roadside bomb exploded near a security vehicle patrolling in Balochistan’s Awaran district, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said Thursday.

“An IED exploded on army convoy in Awaran, Balochistan. Three soldiers including Captain Taha embraced shahadat,” the military’s media wing said in a statement. “Two soldiers got injured. Shaheed include Sepoy Kamran Satti and Sepoy Mehtar Jan."

For whom the bell tolls

Political leadership of Balochistan has time and again blamed ‘external forces’ for fomenting unrest in the province to achieve their ‘ulterior motives’.

Last year in August, the suicide attack on Quetta’s Civil Hospital claimed at least 74 people, most of them lawyers.
