Twin blasts hit Pakistan's Quetta

Two suicide bombers targeting a senior security official struck near government offices in the southwestern Pakistani city of Quetta on Wednesday, killing 20 people, a police official said.

One of the suicide bombers blew himself up in a vehicle packed with explosives near the car of the deputy head of the paramilitary Frontier Corps in Baluchistan, Farrukh Shehzad.

Shehzad was wounded and his wife was killed, police said.

The other suicide bomber struck inside his house. The dead included seven of Shehzad's guards. The explosions brought down the walls of his house and nearby offices.

A man drenched in blood sat dazed beside the road next to the dead body of his baby. Auto-rickshaws were ripped apart by the force of the blasts.
