A roadside bomb has killed at least 7 police officers and wounded 22 others in the southwestern Pakistani city of Quetta.

The attack targeted a truck carrying police personnel on the city's main Saryab road this morning (18).

Television footage from the scene showed the mangled and scorched wreckage of the truck lying by the side of the road.

Police cordoned off the area around the blast site immediately following the attack. 

Quetta, the capital of Balochistan province, has often been at the center of attacks by both religious armed groups such as the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan and armed ethnic Baloch separatists fighting for independence from Pakistan.

No group immediately claimed responsibility for Wednesday's attack.

Balochistan has, however, increasingly come under attack from groups such as the TTP, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and others.
