A Pakistani man who was injured in a bomb blast is brought to a hospital in a Quetta, Pakistan, Saturday, Feb. 16, 2013.
At least 70 people have been killed and more than 180 others wounded in a bomb attack on a market in the south-western Pakistani city of Quetta.




Rescue workers tried to recover more bodies believed to be trapped under the rubble on Saturday night.

Rescue worker Mohammad Ismail said, "Maybe we'll find 30 to 40 more bodies here, because all this has caved in and collapsed."

The blast occurred in the town's main bazaar area, housing stalls, schools and a computer centre. The district is dominated by ethnic Hazaras, and police said the victims were mostly Shia Muslims, many of whom are women and children. Police added the explosion was caused by an improvised explosive device fitted to a motorcycle.

The Sunni group Lashkar-e-Jhangvi has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Last month, the group said it carried out a bombing in Quetta that killed nearly 100 people, one of Pakistan's worst sectarian attacks.
