Four killed, 15 wounded in Pakistan bomb blast

At least four people were killed and 15 others wounded in a blast in the center of Balochistan in Quetta city of Pakistan, local media outlets reported.

Pakistani Dawn News agency reported that the explosion took place close to a college at the Jinnah Road area of the city on Thursday night.

The blast was triggered by a remote-controlled device, said a government adviser Mir Ziaullah Langove, quoted by Dawn.

Balochistan Chief Minister Mir Abdul Qudoos Bizenjo, meanwhile, condemned the attack and called it an “act of terrorism.”

“It is the responsibility of police and security agencies to protect the lives and properties of people. Citizens cannot be left at the mercy of terrorists,” he Bizenjo.

No group or individual, so far, has claimed responsibility for the attack.
