Bomb blast kills at least 65 in Pakistani market

QUETTA, Pakistan — A bomb hidden in a water tank ripped through a crowded market in a mostly Shi’ite neighborhood in a southwestern Pakistani city Saturday, killing at least 65 people and wounding nearly 200, officials said.

Police said many of those wounded in the explosion in Quetta remain in critical condition. The blast, which police said targeted the country’s minority Shi’ite Muslim sect, left many victims buried under rubble, but authorities did not know how many.
