Three paramilitary troops were killed and five others injured by a road side bomb attack in southwest Pakistan on Friday night, reports AP.
No one immediately claimed responsibility for Friday’s attack.
Baluchistan has long been the scene of a low-level insurgency by armed groups demanding more autonomy and a greater share in the region’s gas and mineral resources. Islamist militants also operate in the region.
On October 30, a suicide bomber rammed his motorcycle into a police vehicle, killing one policeman in the town of Loralai in Balochistan.
