Pakistani killed by own scooter bomb as southwest violence surges

A Pakistani tribal militant died and two people were wounded when a bomb in his scooter exploded prematurely, as a rebellion by separatist clansmen in the troubled southwest raged on. Police in Quetta, capital of the restive province of Baluchistan, said they believed the man who died had also planted a device which detonated earlier near a railway line, wounding three people. A shadowy group linked to nationalist tribesmen who want a bigger cut of the royalties from the region’s ample natural resources claimed responsibility for the train bombing. It did not mention the fatal blast. “The man was carrying the bomb hidden under the seat of his scooter to plant it somewhere else,” Quetta police chief Pervez Rafi Bhatti said after the incident in the city’s Art School Road bazaar.Full Story
