ISIS claims responsibility for Pakistan hospital blast

The Islamic State group ISIS has claimed responsibility for Monday’s suicide bombing at a Pakistani hospital, killing at least 70 people, the IS-linked Amaq news agency said.

“A martyrdom bomber of the Islamic State detonates his explosive belt on a group of personnel belonging to the Ministry of Justice and the Pakistani Police in the city of Quetta,” Amaq said.

The attack came after a crowd of about 200 people had gathered at the Civil Hospital in the Balochistan provincial capital of Quetta following the fatal shooting of a senior local lawyer earlier in the day.

The crowd which comprised of mainly journalists and lawyers were at the hospital after the death of the President of Balochistan Bar Association.
