Six killed, 20 injured in blast near Balochistan Assembly

A loud explosion rocked Quetta's Zarghoon Road on Tuesday, with at least four people killed and almost a dozen injured, DawnNews reported.

Back in December 2017, a suicide attack on the city's Bethel Memorial Methodist Church left at least nine people dead and 43 others injured.

Five to six terrorists had stormed into the police training centre at Sariyab Road and targeted at least 60 security officials after taking them hostage under the cover of aerial fire. He said two of the injured were in a critical condition. Large numbers of security personnel were deployed in the area as part of security measures for Balochistan Assembly's session. The road also leads to the Chief Minister's Secretariat.

The security forces immediately cordoned off the blast site, whereas, rescue teams rushed to the spot and moved the injured persons to nearby hospitals.

According to sources, a suicide bomber riding a motorcycle detonated his explosives at the check-point after failing to reach Balochistan Assembly.

The injured have been shifted to Civil Hospital and Balochistan Medical Complex (BMC), while emergency has been declared in these medical facilities. Media personnel have all gathered at the provincial assembly.
