A bomb exploded in an Awamai National Party (ANP) Motorcycle rally today. So far three deaths have been reported.

Over twelve injured and three lost their lives when a bomb planted in a motorcycle blasted during Amami National Party Rally. The rally was unique in its nature as it was a motorcycle rally for the first time in this season.

The explosion resulted in a havoc in the city of Quetta. It occurred in the mid morning half an hour before the start of ANP rally. Awami Party, which represents the ethnic Pashtun-Kuchlak in the area, said a police spokesman in Quetta.

Several local television stations increased the number of deaths to four and said they included a young girl.

Prime Minister of Pakistan Raja Pervaiz Ashraf is scheduled to visit Quetta today. Quetta is the capital of the restive province of Baluchistan, Pakistan's largest but least populated and the one with the worst indicators of development.

However sevaral insurgenst were reported to have been operating in this region already. Yet it looked impecable for the admins to locate this happening and made premptive measures.

The separatist tensions and intense jihadist militia in Baluchistan make this area tense with high rates of violence, but often go unnoticed in front of the incidents in other areas further north.

Update:

The death toll has risen to five and counting if severely injured would fail to get enough medical treatment.
