QUETTA: Security forces foiled a terror bid by diffusing a 20 kilogram (kg) improvised explosive device (IED) in a remote area of the city on Tuesday.

According to police, the IED was found by the law enforcement authorities at a roadside in the city's remote area of Kalli Tarkha. The 20 kg bomb was in an empty tin. The bomb disposal squad immediately diffused the bomb. Police said an investigation has started into the case.

On Sunday, nine people were killed when terrorists targeted the Bethel Memorial Church in Quetta, while over 50 people were injured.
