Police in Pakistan have arrested several boys under the age of 15, accused of being bombers.
Investigators in the western city of Quetta say the 11 children were recruited by the United Baloch Army, a group banned by the Islamabad government.
Police say they were paid an average of $30 every time they planted homemade bombs in markets, dustbins and on roads used by security forces.
The United Baloch Army is fighting for an independent state in Balochistan province.
