PESHAWAR (Pajhwok): Eight Afghan refugees have been detained in different areas of Pakistan’s southwestern Balochistan province,

The arrests came in a string of raids by the Frontier Corps (FC) on Friday -- days after a suicide bomber killed seven people in the provincial capital.

On Tuesday, seven people including five Balochistan Constabulary personnel were killed after a bomber struck a security forces’ truck near the Balochistan Assembly.

A statement from the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said on Friday: “Balochistan FC conducted intelligence-based operations] in Sambaza, Sibbi and Hazar Ganji areas.”

Weapons and ammunition including grenades, improvised explosive devices, rockets and explosives were recovered in the operations, the army’s media wing said.
