least 70 dead and dozens wounded after a suicide bomber struck a hospital in Pakistan on Monday. Scenes of chaos as people try to flee. The blast targeting a group of over a 100 mourners gathered in the emergency department of the hospital in the city of Quetta.
They were accompanying the body of a prominent lawyer who'd been shot dead earlier in the day. The dead and wounded are mainly journalists and lawyers. A faction of the Pakistani Taliban, Jamaat-ul-Ahrar, claimed the attack as their own. The group killed more than 70 people earlier this year in a similar bombing at a park.
Targeted killings have become increasingly common in Quetta, the capital of a province that's seen rising violence linked to a separatist insurgency.
