At least twenty people were killed or wounded in a suicide attack in Balochistan province of the country.

The incident took place in the vicinity of Chaman located close to Afghanistan late on Monday.

According to the local officials, a suicide bomber detonated his explosives near the vehicle of the security forces.

The officials further added that one person was killed in the attack and at least twenty two others were wounded.

The chief minister of Balochistan Nawab Sanaullah Zehri in a statement condemned the attack.

According to the Levies sources quoted by the local media, the explosion resulted into the closure of the gate connecting Afghanistan and Pakistan.

No individual or group has so far claimed responsibility behind the incident.

The homegrown Pakistani Taliban, Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), normally claims responsibility behind such attacks.

In a similar attack in mid-August this year, at least fifty people were killed or wounded in the provincial capital in Quetta city.

The incident took place after a suicide bomber attacked the Pakistani army in the city.
