Pakistan: Dozens killed in Quetta bomb attack

Dozens of people have been killed and many more wounded in a bomb attack in a Shia-dominated part of the south-western Pakistani city of Quetta.

The bomb went off in a crowded vegetable market as people, many of them women and children, were shopping for groceries in the late afternoon.

It is the second major attack on Quetta's 600,000-strong Hazara community in five weeks.
