Police say a roadside bomb blast has killed two people and wounded 10 in southwestern Pakistan. Police official Mohammad Arif says Monday's explosion went off along a road near the airport in Quetta city, the capital of the southwestern province of Baluchistan.

Arif says the bomb was planted in a rickshaw parked along the road.

He says police are investigating whether it was a timed device or remote controlled.

Baluchistan has for years seen a low level insurgency by nationalist groups vying for greater share in the natural resources in the region.
