At least three Pakistani troopers were killed and 20 wounded in a suicide attack in the southwest on Sunday, Reuters reported.
The militant Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) claimed responsibility for the attack.
The group renewed its allegiance to that group after the fall of Kabul last month and has recently stepped up its campaign against the Pakistani army.
The attack occurred as a checkpoint security detail was being relieved, said Sheikh Rashid, Pakistan’s interior minister. Three members of the Frontier Constabulary (FC) were killed and 20 wounded, he told reporters.
“Condemn the TTP suicide attack on FC checkpost in Mastung Road, Quetta,” Prime Minister Imran Khan said in a tweet.
