6 killed, 9 wounded in Pakistani blasts

Five bombs ripped through a police training school in southwestern Pakistan early Thursday, leaving six policemen dead and nine wounded, a police official and a doctor said.

The bombs had been planted at a firing range on the grounds of the police school in Quetta, capital of the southwestern Baluchistan province, said Wazir Nasar, a senior Quetta police official.

It was not immediately clear who planted the bombs or why, and police were investigating, Nasar said. Baluchistan has seen frequent attacks on security forces blamed on tribesmen on a campaign to extract more royalty from the government for resources taken from their area.

Four of the injured were seriously hurt, said Mohammed Abdullah, a doctor at the state-run Civil Hospital in Quetta.

"We received six bodies and nine injured people," he said.

An Associated Press reporter also saw the six bodies, some of them with blown-off limbs, reports the AP.
