Pakistan: One dead in Baluchistan rocket attack on train
Friday 16 August 2013
One passenger has been killed and 12 others injured in a rocket attack on a moving train in a mountainous region of south-west Pakistan, an official said.
Railway official Kashif Khan said the attack happened near the village of Dozan as the train was heading to the town of Sibi in Baluchistan province.
Dozan village is about 30 miles east of Quetta, the capital the impoverished province.
Mr Khan said the dead and wounded were taken to a government hospital.
No-one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, but suspicion fell on separatists in Baluchistan who have long waged a low-level insurgency against the government.
