A suicide car bomber rammed a military jeep in a Pakistani border city on Wednesday, killing an 11-year-old girl and injuring 11 troops, police said.
The attacker rammed the military vehicle on the road to the airport in Quetta, provincial police chief Asif Nawaz Warraich said.
Speaking to Dawn News television, Warraich said 13 people were injured, including 11 from the paramilitary Frontier Corps. Some of the troops were in serious condition, he added.
Raja Ishtiaq, another senior police official, said seven injured people were brought to Quetta's main hospital and that an 11-year-old schoolgirl had died.
Quetta, the capital of the southwestern province of Baluchistan, is considered a hub for Taliban militants fighting in neighboring Afghanistan and against Pakistani forces in the border region.
