QUETTA: Four Frontier Corps (FC) personnel were injured as a roadside bomb exploded near their vehicle in Spalanji area of Mastung on Monday.
“An IED exploded near a FC vehicle on security duty of a construction of a road,” security sources said.
The vehicle was partly damaged in the attack.
In a similar attack on Friday, a suicide bomb blast targeting the convoy of a senior politician in Balochistan killed 26 people and wounded 30 others — some of them critically — shattering a relative calm that has prevailed in recent weeks in the province.
The blast in the town of Mastung, about 50km from the provincial capital, struck a vehicle carrying Senate Deputy Chairman Maulana Abdul Ghafoor Haideri, shortly after Friday prayers.
The Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) secretary-general escaped the attack with light wounds, medics said, but his driver and another aide in the same vehicle were killed.
