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.

Earlier in June, 14 people - including seven policemen - lost their lives in a suicide blast that shook Shuhada Chowk in Quetta's Gulistan Road area.

Abdul Salam was shot multiple times, police said.

Balochistan Home Minister Sarfraz Bugti said the nature of the blast couldn't be ascertained, adding that security forces might be the target.

Medical Superintendent of the Civil Hospital Quetta, Shah Jahan, said that seven bodies including six policemen, and 24 injured, mostly policemen, have been brought to the hospital.

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

Balochistan Home Minister Sarfaraz Bugti while condemning the attack confirmed the deaths in the attack.

Security officials said a remote-controlled bomb was set off as an army vehicle passed by. Local media said that TTP spokesperson Muhammad Khurasani took credit of the attack in a statement. 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.
