At least seven killed, several wounded in Pakistan blast

"We can not yet say that this is a suicide attack, our teams are in research and investigations at scene", Cheema said.

The roadside bombing that killed two members of Pakistani paramilitary forces struck near a security post close to the North Waziristan tribal region, two intelligence officials told The Associated Press. He said that in Pakistan there is no entity of terrorist organization Daish whereas the militants are using the Afghan soil for their nefarious designs.

Security forces have cordoned off the area and kicked off a search operation in the surroundings.

TWO SECURITY PERSONNEL KILLED IN N. WAZIRISTAN: In a separate incident in North Waziristan, two security personnel were killed in a roadside blast.

President Mamnoon and Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi strongly condemned the terrorist attack in Quetta and paid tribute to the police personnel who laid their lives in the line of duty.
