Army: Bomb kills 4 sol­diers in south­west Pak­istan

The Washington Times Daily - - WORLD -

QUETTA | The Pak­istani army says a road­side bomb has killed four sol­diers in a south­west­ern town near the Ira­nian bor­der.

The army said in a state­ment that an­other three troops were wounded in the ex­plo­sion Sun­day.

No one has claimed re­spon­si­bil­ity. Po­lice of­fi­cial Mir As­lam said the bomb ex­ploded as a pa­trol passed through the town of Tur­bat in the Baluchis­tan prov­ince.

The prov­ince bor­ders both war-torn Afghanistan and Iran. The in­ci­dent hap­pened close to Iran’s bor­der.

The prov­ince has long dealt with an in­sur­gency by na­tion­al­ist and separatists groups who want big­ger shares in re­gional re­sources.
