Pakistan attacks: Militants Laskar-e-Jhangvi claim deadly Quetta blasts

Gunmen have attacked a hospital in the western Pakistani city of Quetta, hours after an explosion on a bus killed 14 female university students.

Officials say four gunmen were among a further 10 people killed during a siege of part of the hospital where the wounded are being treated.

An extremist Sunni militant group, Laskar-e-Jhangvi, told the BBC it carried out both attacks as revenge for a raid by security forces against the group in which a woman and children were killed.

Shahzeb Jillani reports.
