3 bombs in Baluchistan kill 1, wound 18

QUETTA, Pakistan — Police say three bomb explosions have killed a man and wounded 18 other people in Baluchistan, an impoverished but oil-rich province in Pakistan where Baluch nationalist groups have been fighting for more autonomy for decades.

Police officer Abdul Hameed Lasi says one of the bombs Friday was rigged to a motorcycle. It exploded in a busy market in the industrial town of Hub, about 355 miles (570 kilometers) south of the provincial capital, Quetta, killing one man and wounding 15.

Lasi says the attack appears to be the work of separatists.

Another police official, Abdul Qadoos, says two more bombs ripped through a street in the town of Mach, 30 miles (50 kilometers) east of Quetta, wounding three.
