Deadly Blast Hits Pakistani Hospital 


On July 22, there was another bomb attack in Quetta, when a bomb planted on a roadside exploded.

At least six people have been killed in a blast at the main gate of a hospital in the southwestern Pakistani city of Quetta.

Police say several people were also wounded in the August 8 explosion, which took place shortly after the body of a prominent lawyer killed in a shooting attack was brought to the hospital.

No one immediately claimed responsibility for the hospital attack.

A government spokesman in southwestern Balochistan Province said an investigation is underway.

It was also unknown who was behind the killing of the lawyer, Bilal Kasi, who was gunned down on his way to court earlier on August 8.
