At least 10 people were killed and dozens more wounded on Monday when a powerful bomb exploded in a passenger bus in Pakistan's southwestern Baluchistan province, local officials said.
The explosion came as night fell and people working in Quetta left for their homes on the outskirts of the city.
"I can confirm that at least 10 people have been killed and 23 were injured in a bomb explosion in a bus," Akbar Hussain Durrani, home secretary of Baluchistan province, told AFP.
A senior police official and a hospital doctor confirmed the causalities.
