Young Baloch Tiger (YBT), a banned militant organisation, has claimed responsibility for Monday’s bomb blast on a bus in the city’s Sariab road area which left 11 people dead and many others injured.

The claim was made in a phone call to the media by one Berg Baloch, who spoke on behalf of the YBT.

“Our man was shifting explosive material to target some other place during which it exploded in the local bus,” he said, adding that the man carrying the explosives also died in the blast.
