TEXT SIZE - +
Officials in southwest Pakistan say an explosion has ripped through a vehicle used by security forces, killing at least 12 people and wounding nearly two dozen.

Police officials say a remote-controlled car bomb targeted a vehicle carrying police special forces in Quetta Thursday.

Authorities say the bomb contained about 100 kilograms of explosives.

Quetta is the capital of Baluchistan province, which has been the center of a low-level insurgency for years by nationalists who want a greater share of regional natural resources.
