An blast today in the southwestern Pakistani city of Quetta, capital of the nation’s Baluchistan region, has killed no less than five individuals, a police official told Reuters.

“The blast occurred close to the IG office (reviewer general of police) and it’s conceivable the aggressors were attempting to enter the (armed force) cantonment which is close by,” said provincial government spokesman Anwar ul-Haq Kakar.
