At least four people including three Pakistan Rangers personnel were on Wednesday killed in a series of blasts, including a suicide bombing outside the force’s headquarters here in southeast Pakistan.

A suicide bomber tried to enter the Rangers headquarters located in North Nazimabad area in Pakistan’s largest city.

When the motorcycle-borne bomber was stopped by security personnel at the gate he detonated his explosives-laden vest claiming the lives of two Rangers personnel and a private security guard.

Meanwhile, earlier in the day, an IED blast targeted a Rangers check post.

A second IED blast took place at the same spot a few minutes later claiming the life of a Rangers personnel.

Five others including policemen and Rangers were also injured.
