Images of the latest violence in the Pakistani province of Balochistan, where at least 11 female students were killed by a bomb on a university bus in Quetta.
Gunmen have attacked a bus at a university in the western Pakistani city of Quetta, killing several students.
The bus was carrying female students as they were going home. Sunni militant group Laskar-e-Jhangvi claimed the attack.
About 20 wounded students were taken to a local hospital, which was itself attacked by gunmen as the victims were being treated.
Quetta is the capital of Balochistan province, which has seen a surge in violence. Hours before the Quetta violence, a historic house in the mountain resort of Ziarat was destroyed by militants.
Security forces in Balochistan have been battling both separatist insurgents and Sunni Islamist extremists.
