Police say a bomb has exploded in a railway station in southwestern Pakistan, killing at least five people.

Police officer Qasim Salachi says at least 20 others were wounded in the bombing at the station in Baluchistan province's Sibbi city.

Salachi said the bomb went off just minutes after a train pulled into the station, as passengers were buying food and drinks.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Baluchistan has experienced decades of violence at the hands of separatists who demand a greater share of the province's natural resources. It is also believed to be a base for many Afghan Taliban militants.
