The devestating attacks in Quetta on a bus carrying students of Sardar Bahadur Khan Women’s University and the Bolan Medical College Hospital shocked the nation and drew condemnation from across Pakistan. The banned terrorist group Lashkar-i-Jhangvi claimed responsibility for the bomb blasts which had been carried out by a female suicide bomber.

At least 25 people, including the deputy commissioner of Quetta, 14 students of the women’s university and four nurses were killed in the attacks.
