At Least 53 Killed In Pakistan Hospital Blast

Dozens of other people were injured in the blast, which happened in the grounds of a government-run hospital in Quetta.

The explosion took place shortly after the body of a prominent lawyer killed in a shooting attack was taken to the hospital.

The bomb attack appeared to target around 150 mourners who had gathered close to the hospital’s emergency ward, a spokesman for the Balochistan government said.
