Islamabad: The banned Baloch Republican
Army has claimed responsibility for a roadside bomb attack
that killed four people, including three employees of
Pakistan`s state-run oil and gas company in the restive
Balochistan province.

A BRA spokesman, who identified himself as Sarbaz
Baloch, called reporters in the southwestern city of Quetta to
claim responsibility for yesterday`s bombing and said his
group will continue to carry out such attacks.

The BRA, which is among several groups waging a
violent insurgency in Balochistan, has targeted employees of
state-run firms like the Oil and Gas Development Company in
the past too.

Four people were killed and 18 others injured when the
group attacked a convoy of the oil company in March.
A bomb hidden in motorcycle was used to target an OGDC
vehicle in Dera Allahyar town yesterday.

Two engineers and a driver of OGDC and a passerby were
killed in the attack.
