At least three security personnel were injured on Saturday when a remote-controlled bomb blast hit a caravan of security forces in southwest Pakistan's Balochistan province, local media reported.

Two soldiers and a driver were injured in the blast near a security vehicle in Kalat division of Balochistan, according to the private TV Express.

Meanwhile, a natural gas pipeline was destroyed by a bomb blast in Sariab area of the Balochistan province. It disconnected natural gas supply to Sariab area, local gas company sources said Saturday.

Balochistan is experiencing an insurgency and sectarian strife for a few years. A radical group, Balochistan Liberation Army (BLA) , is reportedly behind most of terrorist activities in the province. BLA has an independent Balochistan on its agenda.
