Train blast kills at least 12 in southwest Pakistan

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: At least 12 passengers were killed and over 30 wounded in a train blast in Pakistan's restive Baluchistan province on Tuesday (April 8), hospital sources and officials said. The explosion hit a wagon designated for male passengers of the Rawalpindi-bound Jaffar Express while it was at Sibi Railway Station. A rescue worker said the fire that engulfed other train compartments following the blast caused most of the deaths. Television pictures showed a carriage on fire and thick smoke billowing from it. The blast comes a day after Pakistani security forces killed 30 separatist militants in one of the biggest clashes in months in the gas-rich province. The separatist insurgency in Baluchistan province is a chronic security concern undermining stability in nuclear-armed Pakistan.
