7 Killed, 15 Wounded in Pakistan Bombing

Pakistani police say a bomb blast has killed at least seven people and wounded about 15 others in southwestern Baluchistan province.

Authorities say the blast occurred Saturday at the main market in the tribal village of Dera Bugti as people were waiting at a bus terminal.

There has been no claim of responsibility for the attack.

Authorities routinely blame rebel tribesmen for attacks on security forces, gas pipelines and gas fields in the province.

Oil-rich Baluchistan is in the grip of a low-level insurgency by tribal rebels demanding more political autonomy and a great share of profits from the region's natural resources.
