At Least 20 Killed And Dozens Injured In Quetta Market Bombing

CNN reports that at least 20 people are dead and dozens injured following an explosion in a busy market place in the southwestern Pakistani city of Quetta.

The attack hit the city's Hazarganji district, which is home to a large community of the Hazara Shia Muslim minority.

At least seven Hazara people are among the dead, along with one security official.

Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, a Sunni militant group known to target the Hazara community, said it carried out the bombing.
