Quetta: Bus coming from Taftan to Quetta attacked, several deaths feared
Furthermore the bus was targeted 41 km outside Quetta near Mastung. The death toll has already reached 5 and is expected to increase.
Officials claim that the bus caught fire after the blast. They have confirmed that atleast 5 have been martyred. There were 30 to 40 Shiites aboard the bus including children.
As a result of the blast, atleast a dozen people have been injured. They have all been moved to a nearby hospital and are being said to be in critical conditions.
It is worth remembering that Pilgrim buses have been targeted at Taftan and Mastung before and due to the incompetent police and law enforcement, the bus was targeted at the same place again.
There is a lot of anger amongst Shiites at the Taftan incident. Government officials seem helpless in stopping these attacks or providing Shiites any solutions to their problems.
