8 Shias killed in Pakistan bus attack

  • Unidentified gunmen shot and killed eight members of the Shia Hazara community in Quetta in Pakistan’s Balochistan province.

    The victims were in a bus when two gunmen boarded it and fired at them, reports said.

    So far no one has claimed responsibility for the shooting.

    Sunni militants have targeted Shias several times in the past in Quetta. An estimated 200,000 members of the Shia Hazara community have fled the area in recent years.
