Five policemen embraced martyrdom while eight Frontier Corps personnel were injured after a series of blasts in Balochistan province's Quetta city, ARY News reported on Tuesday.

According to initial details, the first suicide bomber exploded himself outside an FC check post at Mian Ghundi on the outskirts of the provincial capital after he was spotted by the guards manning the check post.

A military statement said on April 24 that a suicide bomber detonated an explosive device -near a police van on Airport Road in Balochistan Province's capital, Quetta, killing five officers and wounding seven others. Both the suicide bombers died, he said on condition of anonymity because the army was due to issue an official statement. Bodies of the martyred are now being transported to their native towns while the eight injured officers are undergoing treatment at the Combined Military Hospital (CMH).

This is not the first time that terrorists have attacked security forces and law enforcement agencies in Quetta.

Five people were killed and 27 others had suffered injuries in a suicide attack on a convoy of a paramilitary force in the Sariab Road area of Quetta in November a year ago.
