The children, ranging in age from 11 to 18-years-old, were detained Tuesday night following an operation directed by a Baloch separatist group that managed to escape the scene, Dawn News reported.
Spokesman Zubair Mehmood, said the children told Capital City police they were paid between $20 and $50 per blast. They admitted involvement in more than a dozen bomb explosions.
All of the children came from extremely poor or down-trodden families, Mehmood said.
He said terrorists are using children to carry out incidents at crowded locations in Quetta.
