KARACHI, Pakistan (AP) -- Police and hospital officials say a roadside bomb has struck a bus carrying police officers in southern Pakistan, wounding at least 10 people.

Police officer Mohammad Ali says the attack took place Friday morning in Karachi, the capital of Pakistan's southern Sindh province.

He says the bus was travelling through city's residential area of Quaid-e-Abad when the bomb exploded.

He says authorities suspect that the bomb was attached to a motorcycle and detonated remotely.

Ali says most of the victims have been transported to the city's main Jinnah Post Graduate Medical Center, were some of them were listed in critical condition.

No one has claimed responsibility but Pakistani Taliban have been blamed for such previous attacks in Karachi and elsewhere in Pakistan.
