Truck Explosion Kills Seven in Pakistan

An explosion ripped through a police truck on Wednesday killing at least seven people in Pakistan's southwestern city of Quetta, police said. The attack claimed by Pakistani Taliban killed five police officials and two passers-by on the outskirts of the city of Quetta, police chief Abdur Razzaq Cheema said, TRT reported. He said 24 people were wounded, many of them critically.  The Pakistani Taliban, an umbrella of various militant groups within Pakistan who claim allegiance to the Afghan Taliban, issued a statement saying the attack was a "suicide mission." The group of elite police was targeted on the Sariab Road in the outskirts of Quetta, capital of Balochistan Province, as they headed to work.
