PAKISTAN

Bombings kill 13 in southwest

QUETTA — A bomb at a crowded market in Pakistan’s restive southwestern province of Baluchistan killed 10 people on Thursday, while a roadside bombing elsewhere in the troubled region killed three security officials, police said.

No one immediately claimed responsibility for the bombings, but nationalists in Baluchistan have long waged a low-level insurgency to pressure the government to get more wealth from resources such as natural gas that are extracted from the province.

Islamist militants, including the al Qaeda-affiliated group Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, also operate in Baluchistan.

INDIA

Police: 3 Muslims were planning attacks

NEW DELHI — Indian police have arrested three Muslim militants suspected of planning terror attacks in New Delhi during a major Hindu festival season that starts later this month, a top police official said Thursday.

The three are members of the Indian Mujahideen, an Islamic militant group, police Commissioner Neeraj Kumar said. The group has links to Pakistan’s Lashkar-e-Taiba, which has claimed responsibility for some previous terrorist attacks in India.
