About 60 Lawyers were killed in one attack on Monday in Baluchistan’s capital, Quetta. They lawyers were packed into an emergency room where the body of a slain colleague laid, riddled with gunshot wounds.
The lawyers who came to show solidarity also came with other supporters and activists to protest the killing. A widely circulated video on social media showed lawyers milling about the hospital before a huge explosion which also destroyed the camera.
One of Pakistani Taliban offshoot claimed the attack, as did the Islamic State, though analysts say the latter’s claim is dubious.
This is the worst attack to ever happen on lawyers anywhere in the world. In total about 70 people were killed in that explosion.
Here is the video.
