At least 29 people were killed and dozens injured Tuesday when a powerful explosion ripped through a bus carrying Shia pilgrims in Balochistan's militancy-hit Mastung district. Many of them women and children.

On Wednesday, hundreds of Shia protested against the bus bombing by sitting in the road alongside the bodies of the dead in Quetta.

I am lost for words and my heart is heavy with grief at the tragedy of these people I proudly call my own! may a single drop of the innocent Hazara blood not go unaccounted for and bring divine wrath on the coward loathsome terrorists!
