Bicycle bomb kills two in Pakistan

A bicycle bomb apparently targeting security forces killed two people and injured nine others in Pakistan's troubled southwestern province of Baluchistan yesterday, police said.

The device exploded on the road from Baluchistan's provincial capital Quetta to the airport as a convoy of the government paramilitary Frontier Corps (FC) passed nearby.

Baluchistan is plagued by Islamist militancy, sectarian violence between majority Sunnis and minority Shiite Muslims and a regional insurgency waged by separatists.
