12 killed in Pakistan train blast

Islamabad, April 8 :

At least 12 people were Tuesday killed and 30 others injured in a bomb explosion in a train at a railway station in Pakistan’s Balochistan province, media reported.

The blast took place inside bogie number nine of the Rawalpindi-bound Jaffar Express when it arrived at Sibi station, Dawn online reported.

Federal MInister for Railways Khawaja Saad Rafique said a woman is suspected to be behind the attack.

The blast completely destroyed the bogie and resulted in a fire that spread to other coaches in the train.

Rescue and emergency teams shifted the injured, including women and children, to various hospitals.

Due to the absence of surgeons and shortage of medicine, some victims were shifted from the Sibi Civil Hospital to Quetta.
