On October 18th, a roadside bomb explosion took place in Quetta, the capital of Pakistan’s Balochistan province, killing at least one police officer and wounding 15 other people, mostly civilians.
The bomb had exploded at the moment, when a police bus had parked outside the Baluchistan university, a provincial minister said.
The dead and wounded were transported to a local hospital.
No group has claimed responsibility so far. However, local militants, including the Balochistan Liberation Army, are behind such attacks on security forces.
Various Baloch separatist groups remain active despite several security operations of Pakistan’s security forces in the region.
