QUETTA, Pakistan - A bomb exploded in the city of Quetta in Pakistan's southwestern Baluchistan province, killing 14 people including three children on Thursday, police said.

The bomb was fixed to a bicycle parked next to a madrassa, or religious school, where students and parents had gathered for a graduation ceremony.

"The target was the madrassa, where a certificate-awarding ceremony was taking place," Deputy Inspector General Qazi Wahid told Reuters.

Officials said more than 40 people were wounded in the attack. Several militant groups are active in Baluchistan, Pakistan's biggest but poorest province.
