Quetta blast kills 5, injures 17 (Hazaras) on the eve of eid


Last Updated On 31 August,2011




A police official says a car bomb has exploded in Quetta, killing at least 5 people.

Abdul Jamil says the blast occurred on Wednesday as hundreds of people were leaving a mosque in Quetta, the capital of Baluchistan province.


The crowd had just finished morning prayers to mark Eid al-Fitr. Jamil says at least 17 people were wounded in the attack.
No group immediately claimed responsibility. A car bomb Wednesday killed at least five people and wounded 10 others in the restive southwestern Pakistani city of Quetta, police said.

The bomb exploded in a parking lot after Eid prayers, senior police official Mohammad Hashim told media.
"At least five people were killed and 10 others wounded," Hashim said.


"The bomb was planted in a car and an unidentified man parked it at the site and left."
Hashim said there had been no immediate claim of responsibility and police could not speculate who could be behind the bombing, although the blast site was in an area populated by minority Shiite Muslims.


Hospital official Rasheed Jamali said there was one woman among the five dead brought to hospital.
Witnesses said several cars parked nearby also caught fire and a house was damaged.


Live television footage showed swirls of thick, black smoke as people ran into the street, some pushing their cars to safety, while ambulances carried away the wounded.
