Bomb kills at least 15 in Pakistani city of Quetta

At least 15 people were killed and 32 injured after explosion rocked a high-security zone of Quetta's Pishin Stop in Pakistan tonight, according to DawnNews.

The casualties have been shifted to the city's hospitals where a state of emergency has already been declared.

Security officials said the explosion set on fire multiple vehicles at Pishin Stop in the provincial capital of Balochistan.

Pakistan Army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa condemned the attack in Quetta which he called "an attempt to mar Independence Day festivity" in the country, as per The Express Tribune.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the blast.

Bugti said an investigation was launched to determine the nature of the blast and whether it was a terrorist attack.

In August a year ago, at least 74 people were killed in a suicide attack on the city's Civil Hospital, while another 60 were killed in an attack on a police academy two months later.
