The attack took place in Akhtarabad, on the outskirts of Quetta, the capital of Baluchistan province which borders Iran and Afghanistan.
"An explosive laden car which was parked along the roadside blew up as the bus passed by it, killing two people and wounding 17 people," Quetta city police chief Abdul Razzaq Cheema told AFP.
He said that the 17 injured included four policemen.
