A bomb blast has rocked southwestern Pakistan, killing at least seven people and wounding 35.
Pakistani officials told RFE/RL's Radio Mashaal on February 6 that a convoy of Frontier Corp troops was targeted in the attack in Quetta, the provincial capital of restive Balochistan Province.
Muhammad Khurasani, a spokesman for the Pakistani Taliban militant group, claimed responsibility for the attack.
Officials said the dead and injured included both security personnel and civilians.
Security forces have cordoned off the area and the injured have been taken to a nearby hospital.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility.
Similar attacks in the past have been blamed on Baloch separatists who have been waging a low-intensity insurgency for years, demanding autonomy or outright independence for the mineral and gas-rich province.
