A bomb fitted on a bicycle exploded killing at least ten persons and injured over 30 at Prince Road near Science College in Quetta on Friday.

The powerful remote controlled bomb went off hitting nearby vehicles and sending a plume of smoke, apart from shattering nearby glass windows.

News reports said the bomb missed a vehicle carrying security personnel which had a narrow escape.

Meanwhile on the outskirts of Peshawar in a market in the Sarband area, a suicide bomber blew himself up near an armoured personnel vehicle killing at least eight persons.

Over 30 others were injured, some of them critically in the blast. Many of the injured are women and children.

The toll is expected to rise in both incidents.
