Quetta: A suicide bomber blew himself up killing 11 on the gate of Civil Hospital where people gathered for the corpse of Arshad Zaidi who was killed Friday morning. He is son of Ashraf Zaidi, President of Balochistan Shia Conference. Member of National Assembly Abbas Hazara was also injured. Among those dead are DSP Nisar Kazimi and some other Hazara security officials, a TV cameraman of Samaa TV and 4 journalists who were there to cover the situation.
