At least four people, including two policemen, were killed and 15 others injured in a blast on Monday in Quetta, the provincial capital of Pakistan's southwest Balochistan province, police and health officials said.

Senior Superintendent of Police of Quetta district, Zuhaib Mohsin, said that the blast hit a police vehicle that was on a routine patrol at the Meezan Chowk area of the Qandahari Bazaar of Quetta.

The health official feared that the death toll might further rise as some of the injured were in critical condition. Rescue teams, police and security forces rushed to the site and moved the bodies and the injured to a hospital.

Pakistani Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif condemned the attack, saying that the ill plans of terrorists will be crushed.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack yet.
