In the latest, the students were about to go home when a bomb, apparently planted on their university bus, exploded. Hospital sources say some of the wounded are in critical condition.
Quetta,capital of Balochistan province in Pakistan, has seen a surge in militant violence in recent months; with most of the attacks blamed on separatists and other Islamists who oppose women’s education.
