Bomb kills three, including senior police official in Pakistan


A suicide bomber killed a senior Pakistani police official on his way to work and two others on Thursday in the restive southwestern province of Baluchistan.

Baluchistan was rocked by a series of attacks late last year that claimed over 180 lives and raised concerns about a growing militant presence, including fighters affiliated with Islamic State.

The latest bombing claimed the lives of Additional Inspector General Hamid Shakeel, his driver and another police officer, while three others were seriously wounded.

The Tehreek-e-Taliban, also known as the Pakistani Taliban, claimed responsibility for the attack.
