Series of bombs kills 115 in Pakistan

QUETTA, Pakistan — A ­series of bombings killed 115 people across Pakistan Thursday, 81 of whom died in twin blasts on a bustling billiards hall in a Shi’ite area of Quetta.

Pakistan’s minority Shi’ite Muslims have increasingly been targeted by radical Sunnis who consider them heretics, and a militant Sunni group claimed responsibility for Thursday’s deadliest attack — sending a suicide bomber into the packed pool hall and then detonating a car bomb five minutes later.
