"The blast took place at Hazar Ganji, a fruit and vegetable market on the outskirts of Quetta.

"So far, I have confirmation of 16 martyrs - eight belong to the Hazara community, seven others who worked here one is from the Frontier Constabulary," Abdul Razzaq Cheema, Deputy Inspector General of Quetta, told reporters.

The explosive device was hidden between sacks of potatoes, he said.

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack."

Baluchistan is the focus of projects in the $57 billion China Pakistan Economic Corridor, a transport and energy link planned to run from western China to Pakistan's southern deepwater port of Gwadar.

ethnic Hazaras

Chinese looking Afghans who happen to be Shia.

$57 billion

Almost $70 Billion by now.

Iran is a known opponent of China Pakistan Economic Corridor. But would they kill fellow Shia?

OF COURSE they would. They did it when they were refugees in Iran.

PomPom and Trump were correct to label Iran and it's army "terrorists". And I am sure this won't end well for them. If they expect any help as America tightens the nooze around Iran and it's mullas, that isn't happening. LOL

"Hazaras have been frequently targeted by Taliban and Islamic State militants and other Sunni Muslim militant groups in both Pakistan and Afghanistan."

Taliban and Islamic State militants

Taliban are dead and not much able to do anything. The Afghan Taliban are doing deals with the US.. they don't have time for this nonsense.

ISIS is an Afghan thing. They are not known for targeting these people in Pak.

Which leaves you know who.

As Pompom just testified yesterday, "Iran has used Sunni terrorists".


and other Sunni Muslim militant groups

Besides Taliban and ISIS? Like who?

I don't know of any such groups that target these people.

BS lazy American "journalism".

As long as you get your facts from American trash-journalism, you will be going "maybe this, maybe that" all your life. LOL

You wouldn't know a journalist if you punched one in the face.

Muslims attacking and killing the "minority Hazara community", or the "minority Yazidi community", or the "minority Sunni community", or the "minority Taiyabi community".....

See the common thread? MINORITY.

In countries that are primarily muslim, muslims attack and kill anything that is not muslim. Even if that is other minority muslims.

Europe, if they didn't have their heads up their donkeys, would wise up stop their stupid massive muslim immigration problem. Because, what happens when Germans are the minority in Germany? When Swedes are the minority in Sweden? Or Britons are the minority in England?

Hello! They are showing you what will happen right now! PAY ATTENTION!

Listen you fat slob. I will make it easy for you.

Do you agree with this statement... "Journalism is a nation's FIRST line of defense"? If you do (I do at least) then American journalism FAILED.

If American journalism was working right we would not have DOTARD as POTUS. DUH!

The man is an idiot at best and a traitor at worst. There is no way in hell... given the correct info at the correct time... would this train wreck of a man become president.

Compared to Pakistani journalism.... Well they sent their Prime Minister to jail, didn't they? They kept exposing him until his life was destroyed.

See the difference? Why is American journalism unable and unwilling to go for Trump's throat? I am sure if one keeps scratching at him, there will be secrets unearthed that will make the founding fathers turn in their graves.

American journalism thrives in a culture of brown-nosers.

American journalism doesn't have standards. It can be great and it can be downright provincial.

Mostly it's just provincial garbage.

Why do you think everyone here links to the BBC and other sources... if they can?

New Media... YouTube and such have more news value these days.

In fact, Twitter is a valuable resource. Much of it is garbage but in the India-Pakistan recent conflict (for example), it was invaluable and accurate. We would find out what happened and it would be confirmed a day later.

Nothing beats Twitter. But you need to wait for confirmation by Traditional Media later of whatever you saw on New Media.

Here is an example:

One picture on Twitter has put France's deal to sell RAFALE fighters to India in trouble.



It shows Pakistan Airforce pilots standing next to a RAFALE. They even trained flying the plane and know exactly how to kill it.

This was against India's agreement with DASSAULT and the French govt.

Everyone thought it a joke until India made it official by crying like a prostitute cheated out of her money. LOL

All this happened just a few days ago.

Point is.. New Media is lethal!
