Time bomb explosion in SW Pakistan kills two, wounds over 10

ISLAMABAD, Nov 14 (KUNA) -- A time-bomb explosion in Pakistani Southwestern city of Quetta on Monday evening killed at least two and wounded over 10, said police.

A time-bomb weighing eight kilograms attached to a cycle exploded with a huge bang in the crowded market of the Jinnah town, a local police official, Shabir Shah, told KUNA.

He said the explosion killed two persons including a minor girl and wounded more than 10 others.

Witnesses said the explosion shattered windowpanes of several nearby shops and badly damaged the shop, where the cycle had been parked.

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the explosion but police pointed finger at nationalist militants, struggling for greater provincial autonomy since a decade. (end) amn.
