A bomb attack in the southwestern Balochistan Province of Pakistan has left at least 20 people dead and many others wounded, Press TV reports.


The incident occurred in Hub city in Balochistan Province on Monday, a Press TV correspondent reported.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack so far but the province, which borders Afghanistan, suffers from Taliban attacks.

Despite the Pakistani government's operations against militants and terrorists, they are still able to spread their influence in various regions of the country and have killed thousands of people.

Earlier in the day, 15 people, mostly Shia Muslims were killed and 55 others severely injured after a powerful bomb blast in Pakistan's northwestern Parachinar town close to the Afghan border.

Thousands of Pakistanis have lost their lives in bombings and other militant attacks since 2001, when Pakistan joined an alliance with the United States in Washington’s so-called war on terror.

Since late 2009, there has been a surge in militant attacks in Pakistan and thousands more have been displaced by the wave of violence and militancy sweeping across the country.
