Bombings kill more than 100 people in Pakistan

A deadly day in Pakistan - as more than 100 people were killed in two separate cities on Thursday. Police said at least 69 people were killed and more than 100 injured in twin explosions in the southwestern city of Quetta. The attacks - first at a snooker hall - followed by a car bomb about ten minutes later - took place in a predominantly Shia neighborhood. Earlier in the day, in the city's market - another explosion - killing at least 11 people and injuring more than 40. Then - in a fourth blast - in Pakistan's northwest - at least 21 people were killed and more than 60 people injured as people gathered to hear a religious speaker in the city of Mingora. The string of attacks underscored the threats Pakistani security forces currently face - from homegrown Sunni extremist groups - across the country.
