Blast kills two in Pakistan

A bomb has exploded next to a clinic in Pakistan's gas-rich Baluchistan province, killing at least two people and wounding 13.

    The bomb hit a town 300km north of Quetta in Baluchistan

    The attack happened on Friday in Barkhan, a town about 300km(180 miles) north of Quetta, said Hafiz Inayat Ullah, a police official.

     

    The dead and injured have been shifted to a hospital, where some of the injured are listed in a critical condition, he said.

     

    "The death toll may rise because some of the wounded are in critical condition".

     

    It was not immediately clear if the clinic was the bombers' target.
