    At least two killed, 13 injured in blast near Pak-Afghan border

    QUETTA: At least two people were killed and 13 others wounded on Wednesday after a powerful explosion occurred near the Pak-Afghan border, police said.

    The blast ripped through a private bank in the Vash Mandi area on the Afghan side of the border.

    An Afghan police official who requested anonymity told Dawn.com that militants had planted an improvised explosive device in a motorcycle parked outside the bank.

    "The Improvised Explosive Device (IED) went off when a vehicle of Afghan police approached the bank," he said.

    The intensity of the blast damaged a portion of the bank, nearby shops and smashed the glasses of vehicles parked nearby.

    No one claimed responsibility for the attack. However, the Afghan official said Taliban insurgents were likely behind the attack.

    The blast on the Afghan side of the border prompted the Frontier Corps, a paramilitary force, to tighten security at the friendship gate on the border.

    Moreover, FC personnel were called near the border to avert any untoward incident in the aftermath of the blast.

    The Afghan Taliban have intensified their attacks against US-led coalition forces and personnel from the Afghan national army and police.

    As the Afghan presidential elections approach, people's fears have risen over violence in the country that would vote to elect its new head of state this month.

    Our common enemies remain focused on destabilizing the region with their acts of terror. This attack joins the very long list of crimes against the innocent people in the region. Thousands have fallen victim to terrorist activities on both sides of the border, and the enemies of peace continue to push their deadly mission forward. It is easy to see that the threat lies on both sides of the border, and we strongly encourage both nations to remain united against our common enemies. We have shared interests in the region, and the terrorists also see our nations as a common threat to their mission. We cannot overlook the importance of cooperation and coordination against those who are working against our peace objectives in the region. The seriousness of the situation requires our nations to solidify and negate the threat of terrorism through shared efforts.
