At least eight people were killed and 40 wounded after a suicide bomber blew himself up near a military convoy in Pakistan's western city of Quetta on Saturday, police and hospital officials said, the latest attack in a region home to the planned route of a $46 billion China-Pakistan economic corridor.

"The suicide bomber was riding a bicycle and detonated himself close to a Frontier Corps vehicle," said senior police official Imtiaz Shah, referring to the branch of Pakistan's paramilitary forces targeted in the attack.

At least three Frontier Corps personnel were killed in the attack that occurred in the city center in the late afternoon, Frontier Corps spokesman Khan Wasey said.
