QUETTA, Feb 14: Two explosions rocked Nushki late on Thursday night.

Police said that the explosive devices had been planted outside the election campaign offices of the Pakistan People’s Party and Pakistan Muslim League-Q. The blasts damaged a portion of a wall.

Meanwhile, four children and a man were injured when a bomb went off in the coalmine town of Mach.

According to police, the bomb was planted near a mosque.

The explosion damaged window-panes of nearby houses and created panic in the area.

Police seized arms and ammunition from a Hub-bound ambulance coming from Turbat.

The seized weapons included four AK-47 rifles, besides five magazines and a hand-grenade.

“We have arrested five people, including three women, who were in the ambulance,” a police officer said.
