QUETTA, Pakistan, March 13 (UPI) -- A gang of 11 Pakistani children has been arrested in connection with a series of bomb explosions in suburban Quetta, police said Wednesday.

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.
