7 injured in Quetta blasts
QUETTA: Seven people, including four security personnel, were injured in explosions here and in Gwadar on Tuesday.
Sources said a bomb had been attached to a motorcycle and parked by the Fish Harbour Road in Gwadar, which went off when a vehicle of Frontier Corps passed by. As a result of the explosion, four FC personnel were injured.
“The bomb was planted in a motorcycle that was detonated through a remote control,” a senior police officer told Dawn, adding that a hotel was damaged and windowpanes of many nearby houses and shops were smashed.
“The explosion was so powerful that it rocked the entire port town,” Abdul Ghaffar, a resident of Gwadar, told Dawn by telephone.
