A car bomb in southwestern Pakistan has killed at least three and injured at least 16 people.
Police said the attack took place when a vehicle carrying soldiers from the paramilitary Frontier Corps was passing through a bazar in Quetta, the capital of southwestern Baluchistan Province.
One soldier and two civilians were killed. Most of the injured were civilians.
Police said the bomb was planted in a car parked along the road and apparently detonated by remote control.
No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.
Mineral-rich Baluchistan has been the scene of a low-scale insurgency for years.
Rebels often attack security forces and officials to pressure the government into allocating to the province more wealth from its natural resources.
