"My heart bleeds for the innocent people in Baluchistan. At least 20 people were killed and 48 injured in a blast believed to be targeting members of the Hazara community in Quetta's Hazarganji market on Friday morning."

"Tearful.. shaken.. oh my Quetta. My heartfelt condolences to everyone who has lost a loved one today and sending warmth to each one of you who has survived and is traumatised. Oh Allah! Please make these acts of cowardice and inhumanity stop. Please."
