Quetta blast toll rises to 84

Other Muslims typically the targets of Radical Islam.  A reality way too often overlooked, if looked at at all, here in the US.  Facebook includes photos of the injuries.  They’re all to graphic.
The death toll in the devastating bomb attack that targeted Shia Hazaras in Quetta city of southwestern Pakistan today rose to 84, even as the minority community threatened protests if security forces did not act against militant groups within 48 hours. 

About forty people were killed instantly when nearly a tonne of explosives, hidden in a water tank loaded on a tractor-trolley, were detonated in a busy market at Kirani Road in Hazara Town, a suburb of Quetta, yesterday evening, the latest in a series of deadly sectarian attacks in Quetta. 
Several seriously injured people died in hospital overnight and rescue workers dug out bodies from the debris of buildings flattened by the blast that was heard all over Quetta, the capital of the restive Balochistan province.
