Three killed, 11 injured in bomb attacks in southwest Pak

A security forces vehicle was targeted with a roadside remote-controlled bomb at Saryab Road in Quetta, the capital of Balochistan, killing one security personnel and injuring four passers-by, they said.

Security forces cordoned off the area and launched a search for the attackers.
In another incident, two security personnel were killed and seven others injured when a security forces convoy was targeted with a remote-controlled bomb at Chatar near Dera Murad Jamali city, the officials said.

The local administration took the injured to a hospital in Dera Murad Jamali.
Law enforcement agencies launched a search for the attackers soon after the blast.
No group has claimed responsibility for the bombings though such attacks are usually blamed on Baloch nationalist groups.

In a separate development, police found a body on Spini Road in Quetta this morning.
The dead man was identified as Syed Mohammad Shah, a resident of the city who had gone missing 15 days ago.

The bodies of scores of people who had been detained without charge by security agencies have been found across Balochistan in recent weeks.

Baloch rights groups have claimed that over 100 "missing persons" have been killed so far.
