Karachi: At least 21 people were killed and 50 others injured in a suicide bombing at a crowded market in Pakistan’s restive Balochistan province on Friday, in an attack believed to be targeting the Shiite Hazara ethnic minority community. Prime Minister Imran Khan condemned the attack and ordered an inquiry. The explosion at around 7:35 AM took place in the busy wholesale market area of Hazarganj in Quetta where Hazaras and other traders come daily to buy fruits and vegetables to later sell at their shops in other parts of the city.

However, Home Minister Ziaullah Langove, in a press conference, said that the blast was not targeting “a specific community”. “Our guess is that no specific community was targeted. Marri Baloch and Frontier Corps (FC) personnel were among those killed as well. The numbers of the Hazara community were just greater,” Langove said.

Officials said that 21 people have been killed and 50 others injured in the blast. An Edhi welfare trust rescue official at the scene of the blast said he had counted around 21 bodies being taken to hospitals. At least eight of those killed in the bomb blast are from the Hazara community, Cheema said. The security forces fear the death toll may rise, GEO News reported. Buildings located nearby were also damaged in the blast, police said. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack. Cheema said that due to the blast, security has been provided to shopkeepers and traders at the market. “Traders who come from other parts of the city to buy fruits and vegetables at the market are escorted by police and Frontier Corp personnel,” the officer said. Cheema said around 70 traders had come to the market in different vehicles and were escorted by the FC and Police. He said that the police and FC personnel had put up blocks at the entrance and exit of the market. “The security forces are here, police are here. What more can we do? We secure them (the community) and travel back and forth with them. If something is hidden in a shop, then the shopkeepers will need to be probed,” the officer said. Hazaras make up a significant minority group in Pakistan and most of them live in Quetta. This is not the first time that the Hazara community has been targeted by militants in the province.
