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.
