Five injured in Chaman bombing


CHAMAN: At least five people were injured in an explosion targetting a vehicle of the security forces on Mall Road in Balochistan’s Chaman area on Friday.

Chaman police official Gul Muhammad said a vehicle belonging to a law enforcement agency (LEA) was the target of the blast.

According to officials, the blast was caused by a remote-controlled motorcycle bomb parked at the side of the ride. The bomb was detonated when the security vehicle passed by.

The impact of the blast broke the windows of nearby shops and vehicles.

Police, Levies and Frontier Corps officials have cordoned off the site of the blast.

The latest attack in Balochistan comes exactly a week after a suicide blast in Mastung targeting a Balochistan Awami Party corner meeting left 149 people ─ including BAP leader Siraj Raisani ─ dead and scores injured.
