A bomb in southwestern Pakistan has killed at least 72 people and left more than 200 others injured, rights activists and officials say. The improvised explosive device, which was attached to a vehicle outside a vegetable market in Quetta, targeted Pakistan's minority Shia population. The vehicle was packed with about 800kg of explosives, and caused nearby buildings to collapse, officials said. Al Jazeera's Imtiaz Tyab reports from Islamabad.
