QUETTA:


A bomb blast in Quetta wounded at least two people on Friday, police officials said.


According to them, unknown suspects planted the remote-controlled device under the Sariab Bridge, close to a private hospital. “The bomb went off with a massive bang, wounding at least two bystanders and damaging two cars which were parked close by,” a police official said.


An official of the Bomb Disposal Squad said the remote-controlled bomb was homemade. “Around four kilogrammes of explosive material was used in the device,” he said.


Police and Frontier Corps personnel rushed to the site immediately after the blast and cordoned off the area. The casualties were identified as Shehroz and Sadat Khan.


Police have launched an investigation into the bombing. A senior police official said the intended target of the blast is unknown at this time.
