Land mine blast in Pakistan: 1 killed, 4 wounded in Pakistan

A cow-drawn cart blew up when it triggered a land mine on a dirt road in southwestern Pakistan on Friday, leaving one villager dead and wounding another, police said.

The victims were traveling to their field in the town of Jaferabad, 300 kilometers (180 miles) southeast of Quetta, the capital of Baluchistan province, when the mine exploded, said Salim Ullah, an area police chief.

Ullah declined to speculate on who may have planted the mine.

Also Friday, a bomb exploded outside a shop in Mach, about 35 kilometers (20 miles) from Quetta, injuring four people, said Behram Baluch, an area police official.

The shop, owned by a social worker, was closed for Friday prayers at the time of the explosion, Baluch said, adding that the injured, who were passing through the bazaar at the time, had been taken to a hospital, reports the AP.
