Shocking video, pictures of Quetta suicide bomber released
QUETTA (92 News) – The Supreme Court has on Monday released the pictures of alleged suicide bomber, who blew himself up in Quetta earlier this month killing more than 70 people and injuring several others.
92 News has obtained the CCTV footage and pictures of the alleged terrorist.
Previously, a suicide bomber in Pakistan killed at least 70 people and wounded more than 100 on August 8 in an attack on mourners gathered at a hospital in the southwestern city of Quetta, and Islamic State and a Taliban faction claimed responsibility.
The bomber struck as a crowd of mostly lawyers and journalists crammed into the emergency department to accompany the body of a prominent lawyer who had been shot and killed in the city earlier in the day, Faridullah, a reporter who was among the wounded.
The casualties included lawyers and journalists accompanying the body of Bilal Anwar Kasi.
Jamaat-ul-Ahrar, a faction of the Pakistani Taliban and the so-called Islamic State group, have made competing claims of responsibility.
Jamaat-ul-Ahrar said it had also carried out the earlier attack on Mr Kasi, who was president of the Balochistan Bar Association and had been shot while on his way from his home to the main court complex in Quetta.
