Roadside bomb hits Pakistani security vehicle, wounded 13 in QuettaA roadside bomb hit a Pakistani security vehicle and wounded 13 people on Thursday in the southwestern Pakistani city of Quetta, days after a suicide bombing at a hospital killed at least 74 people, most of them lawyers, officials and media said, the Reuters reports.

Home Minister Safaraz Bugti said the homemade bomb targeted police personnel escorting a judge, who was not hurt in the attack, in the frontier city.

"It was a judge's car that was passing, but I believe it was the police who were the target," he said on Pakistani TV.

"It was a remote-controlled device with 3-4 kg of explosives ... I think these kinds of cowardly acts will not reduce our morale," Bugti said.

Medical Superintendent Abdul Rehman Miankhel told Reuters that 13 wounded people, including four members of the security forces, were being treated at the Civil Hospital, the same facility hit by Monday's suicide attack.
