QUETTA -- A suicide bomber killed four soldiers, and a gunman fatally shot two policemen, in separate attacks in Quetta Wednesday (February 28), officials said.
"Four soldiers were martyred and two others were wounded when a suicide bomber blew himself up at a check-point in the outskirts of the city," a paramilitary force spokesman told AFP.
The bomber had strapped about 8-10kg of explosives on his body, said bomb disposal personnel.
Separately in the city, a gunman ambushed a police vehicle and fatally shot two policemen, senior police official Abdul Razzaq Cheema told AFP.
A senior police official was travelling with his family in the vehicle, but they escaped unharmed, he said.
Nobody immediately claimed responsibility.
