QUETTA: Two consecutive rocket attacks on Saturday spread fear in Quetta a day after when a car-bomb blast killed more than a dozen, DawnNews reported.

However, according to rescue resources, attacks did not cause any causality.

The first rocket, fired from an unknown location, dropped in a graveyard near Sabzal Road was followed by the second one which was dropped in a crop field next to Spinney Road.

Emergency was imposed in two hospitals of the city which was plunged with fear and chaos after the attacks.

Yesterday’s attack near a politician’s residence killed more than a dozen and injured around 30 in the violence-ridden city.
