Pakistan Shi'ites targeted in deadly bombing


More than 40 people have been killed in a bombing in a Shi’ite Muslim area of Quetta in Pakistan.

The bomb was reportedly attached to a motorbike.

One hundred and thirty people have been injured in what police say is part of an escalation of sectarian attacks by hardline Sunni extremists.

Pakistan’s Shi’ite minority has been demanding protection from the government.

This latest attack may be by the group Lashkar-e-Jhangvi who killed 100 people in a bombing in Quetta in January.
