Security forces seize explosive-laden vehicle near Chaman


Security forces seized a vehicle packed with more than a tonne of explosives in Balochistan on Friday.

Paramilitary troops recovered the vehicle along with a cache of ammunition and four suicide vests during a raid on a refugee camp close to the border with Afghanistan, officials said.

“A vehicle laden with explosives weighing 1,200 kilogrammes was recovered from an Afghan refugee camp in Roghani area near the Afghan border,” Frontier Corps (FC) spokesman Manzoor Ahmed said. He said two people had been arrested and taken to an undisclosed location for questioning.

“I cannot say which group the two men belong to but we had an intelligence tip-off that an explosive laden vehicle is about to be delivered in Quetta,” he said.
