Islamabad/Xinhua/UNI: Pakistani army said on Tuesday that seven security personnel were killed in a roadside bomb attack, and exchange of fire with terrorists in southwestern Balochistan province.

An army statement said an improvised explosive device hit a vehicle of the paramilitary troops Frontier Corps, which was returning to a base camp after a routine patrolling duty in Mach area of Balochistan on Monday night.

Six security personnel were killed in the blast, the statement from the army's media wing, the Inter-Services Public Relations said.

In another incident, one security force member was killed during an exchange of fire with terrorists near Kech area of Balochistan, according to the statement.

No group has claimed responsibility for the two attacks yet.

Earlier this month, the Pakistani security troops were also attacked by a roadside bomb which killed six security personnel in Balochistan which borders Iran.

Pakistani army said last week that Pakistan's Chief of Army Staff Qamar Javed Bajwa called on enhancement of bilateral cooperation with Iran to ensure border security in a telephonic conversation with Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Mohammad Bagheri.
