A remote-controlled bomb targeting Shiite Muslims killed at least 10 people in Pakistan's insurgency-hit southwest on Saturday, police said.
The incident took place in Hazara town, an area dominated by Shiites on the outskirts of Quetta, capital of oil and gas rich Baluchistan province.
"Ten people have been killed, the death toll may rise. It was a remote-controlled bomb. All the dead were from the Shiite community," Wazir Khan Nasir, senior police officer in Quetta, told AFP.
"It was a sectarian attack, the Shiite community was the target," he added.
