    QUETTA: At least one person was killed and another 22 were injured in a powerful blast in Quetta, the capital of Balochistan province on Thursday, police said.

    Five of the injured are said to be in critical condition.

    Police said miscreants had planted a bomb near an ice cream shop in Mitha Chowk area of Pashtoonabad, located in the outskirt of Quetta.

    The bomb went off at a time when there was crowd of people. Police said eight children were among the injured.

    The strength of blast smashed the windows of nearby homes and shops causing panic in the area. Most of the inhabitants of the area were confined to their homes for fear of another blast.

    Police, frontier corps and rescue workers were quick at the scene to shift the injured to civil hospital Quetta for medical treatment.

    "More than 15 injured are brought to civil hospital Quetta for treatment," Dr. Rasheed Jamali, a doctor on duty told Dawn.com.

    Emergency was imposed in civil hospital to ensure timely treatment for the injured.

    All doctors and paramedics were called to treat the injured in the blast. Security in and around Quetta civil hospital was tightened to avert another untoward incident.

    An official of the bomb disposal squad told Dawn.com that more than two kilogram of explosive materials were used in the blast.

    First and foremost, we send our heartfelt condolences to the victims’ families. We wish a quick and speedy recovery to those who are injured.

    This latest act of terror joins the list of many in the last few days. It is safe to say that the terrorists are fully focused on pushing their deadly agenda forward. They continue to prey upon innocent civilians in their bid to spread fear and chaos. Those who continue to support conspiracy theories should realize that the brave Pakistani soldiers are sacrificing their lives daily in trying to protect the nation from the same culprits. We share a common stance against terrorism, and fully support the Pakistani government in their efforts to counter insurgency. Our officials continue to meet to address our common concerns in the region, as evident by the recent meeting between Gen. Joseph F. Dunford and Gen. Raheel Sharif. We will continue to build on our improving relationship, and certainly hope to stay unified against our common enemies in the region.
