A bombing in the city of Quetta, in western Pakistan, left about 90 people killed and 160 injured. It was just another episode in the rampage of the Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, an extremist Sunni militant group, who claimed responsibility for the blast, in its efforts to create a one-faith nation.
The area targeted is populated by Shia Muslims.
For three days, the relatives of those killed refused to bury their dead, a protest against authorities they said were turning a blind eye towards anti-Shia violence.
