Event

The official death toll from the bombing in the Hazar Ganji area of Quetta (Balochistan province) has increased to 16 people as of approximately 11:30 (local time) on Friday, April 12. Another 30 people were also wounded in the attack, which occurred at a fruit and vegetable market. According to initial reports, the bomb was hidden in bags of vegetables. Nearby buildings were also damaged in the blast. A police cordon remains in place and recovery efforts are ongoing.

Context

No group has immediately claimed responsibility for the bombing. The attack occurred in a predominantly Shi'ite area of Quetta. Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), Al-Qai'da, Islamic State (IS) affiliates, Jamaat-ul-Ahrar, Afghan Taliban, and other Islamist militant groups continue to pose a threat throughout the country despite continued army offensives to push them from their strongholds near the Afghan border. Pakistan has suffered numerous deadly attacks in recent months, notably in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan provinces.

Advice

Individuals in Quetta are advised to remain vigilant for militant activity, report suspicious objects and behavior to the police, and adhere to any instructions issued by the local authorities and their home governments.
