NEW YORK (92 News) – UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon condemned the “terrorist bombing” at a hospital in Pakistan on Monday, saying it was “particularly appalling” that the suicide attack targeted a group of mourners. The bomber struck a crowd of some 200 people gathered at the Civil Hospital in Quetta after the fatal shooting of a senior local lawyer earlier in the day. At least 70 people died in the attack and more than 100 were wounded. “The targeting of mourners at a civilian hospital makes the attack particularly appalling,” said Ban’s spokesman Farhan Haq.
