6 killed in Pakistan bus blast

Six people died in Pakistan on Saturday when a blast tore through a passenger bus, a government official said.

The incident occurred in a village in the Gujrat district of Punjab province.

Three women and a child were among the dead, said Nawazish Ali, a senior government official. At least 19 others were injured, with eight of them in critical condition, Ali said.

It comes a day after twin suicide bombings killed at least 80 people at a military training facility in near the country's tribal region.
