Bombing in Pakistan Market Kills at Least 20

A bombing in western Pakistan killed at least 20 people and injured dozens more.

The bomb went off Friday morning in a market in Quetta.

The city is home to a large community of Hazaras, a Shia Muslim minority.

The death toll included at least seven Hazaras and one paramilitary soldier.

Quetta's police chief  told Al Jazeera  that security forces escort members of the Hazara community to the market each day and that paramilitary soldiers and police were patrolling the area when the bomb went off.

According to CNN , a Sunni militant group claimed responsibility for the attack.  Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan  called for  additional security in the city.

He said, QUOTE "Deeply saddened & have strongly condemned the terrorist attack ... targeting our innocent people."
