QUETTA: Three Shia pilgrims were killed and another nine were injured on Tuesday after their bus came under attack on Tuesday in Mastung District, rescue officials said.

Mastung Deputy Commissioner (DC) Irfan Shah and Balochistan Levies officials confirmed three deaths. Sources said officials had recovered remains of a car from the scene. They were of the view that the car could be used in the attack near Lak Pass. However, they were yet to confirm whether it was a suicide attack or a roadside bomb ripped through the bus coming from Iran.

"There is no sign that someone on the bus exploded himself," the DC and rescue officials told our sources.
