A rickshaw bomb blast has killed at least two people and injured ten others in Pakistan. No one has yet claimed responsibility for the bomb that exploded in Quetta, capital city of Baluchistan province in Southwest Pakistan.
At least two people were killed and 10 others injured in a bomb blast in Pakistan on Monday.
According to reports citing police sources, the blast ripped through a rickshaw in Pakistan's southwestern city of Quetta.
Police said the bomb was planted in a rickshaw and exploded on a road leading to the airport, damaging at least three vehicles.
Police and paramilitary personnel cordoned off the area and investigations are underway.
The dead and injured were moved to the Civil Hospital in Quetta for treatment.
Pakistan has seen a wave of suicide bomb attacks in the past three years. However, most of them have taken place in the country's northwest where troops are battling Pakistani Taliban militants.
Quetta, in the Southwest, is the capital of Baluchistan province, the poorest and biggest province in Pakistan.
Baluchistan has suffered a decades-long low-level insurgency by Baluch separatists who are demanding more provincial autonomy and control of the province's resources.
Nobody has yet claimed responsibility for the Quetta blast.
