QUETTA: A bicycle bomb apparently targeting security forces killed two people and injured nine others at airport road in Quetta on Tuesday, Geo News reported.

 

According to police, the device exploded on the road from Quetta to the airport as a convoy of the government paramilitary Frontier Corps (FC) passed nearby.

 

"Two people passing by were killed in the blast and nine others wounded. The injured also included three FC soldiers," a senior police official told.
