At least four members of the Pakistani security forces were killed in an attack by the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) in Pakistan's Quetta city on Wednesday.

The Frontier Corps troops were riding two motorcycles along a railway track in the Langoabad area as part of their routine patrol in the morning when unidentified attackers opened fire and killed all four, a police official told Efe news.

The TTP claimed responsibility in a statement by its spokesperson, Muhammed Khurasani, saying that "the attack was carried out by a contingent of the TTP Special Task Force and that the attackers left the area without harm".

This marked the first Taliban attack after Khan Saeed Mehsud alias Khalid Sajna, the second most senior leader of the Pakistani Taliban, was killed last week in a drone strike by the US.
