At least 70 people, nearly half of them lawyers, were killed and more than a hundred wounded in a suicide attack targeting mourners gathered at Quetta's Civil Hospital, on Monday morning.
The bomber struck as a crowd of lawyers and journalists crammed into the Emergency Department of the hospital, after the fatal shooting of president of the Balochistan Bar Association earlier the same morning.
Quetta weeps again
Rescue operations commenced and a state of emergency was declared across hospitals in Quetta. We look at some heart wrenching photographs of the aftermath that followed.
