QUETTA, Pakistan (AP) -- Police say a bomb exploded has outside a police station in a crowded market in southwest Pakistan, killing at least five people.

Police official Mohammed Mohsin says the blast on Thursday in Quetta, the capital of Baluchistan province, also wounded at least 20 people. The bomb also damaged several shops and vehicles parked in the market.

No one has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Baluchistan is home to both Islamic militants and separatists who have waged a decades-long insurgency against the government.
