Balochistan Home Minister Mir Zia Langove in a statement said that a convoy of six Pakistan Army vehicles was passing on the road when the bomb fitted in a motorcycle exploded.

“Four to five kilograms of explosive material was used in the bomb. Five security officials were injured in the blast and were taken to Combined Military Hospital (CMH),” he told reporters.
