67 killed in terror attack

UP TO 67 people were killed after a bomb exploded in a food market in Quetta, Pakistan on Saturday night, in the latest of a string of terror attacks in the past month.

The Independent reported the death toll from the latest blast could rise higher, with an additional 180 people injured in the bomb attack, many with critical injuries.

Pakistan police reported the bomb was planted in a rickshaw and remotely detonated, targeting the Quetta Shia community.

The blast sparked protests by members of the Shia community, blocking roads with burning tyres and throwing stones at passing cars, The Independent reported.

It was the latest in a string of attacks, after two suicide bombers blew themselves up at a snooker club last month, killing 86 people and wounding 121.
