15 injured in attack in SW Pakistan

ISLAMABAD (Xinhua) -- At least 15 people were injured in a hand grenade attack in Pakistan’s southwestern Balochistan province on Thursday evening, local Urdu media reported.
According to local reports, the incident happened at about 7:30 pm local time in the Sultan Shaheed area of Mastung, a district in Balochistan province.
Senior local police officer Abdul Quddus said that some unknown assailants riding on a motorbike hurled a hand grenade near a busy mobile market and fled the scene, leaving at least 15 people injured.
The attack also led to a stampede as a large number of people were shopping in the market, Dunya News reported.
Rescue teams and police rushed to the scene and shifted the injured to a nearby hospital where four of the injured are said to be in a critical condition.
Security forces cordoned off the area and kicked off a search operation in the surroundings to hunt down the miscreants.
No group or individual has claimed responsibility for the attack yet.
The attack came a day after a deadly suicide blast hit a police truck in Quetta city of the same province, leaving at lest seven policemen dead and 24 others injured.
