The death toll in the Hazarganji attack rose to 22 on Wednesday after another victim passed away at a hospital in Quetta.

Nineteen people were killed in a suicide attack at a vegetable market in Quetta’s Hazarganji on Friday. Over 50 people were injured, eight of them from the Hazara community.

Hazaras staged a four-day protest after the attack, demanding the government give them better security. They ended their demonstration after State Minister for Interior Shehryar Afridi assured them that the culprits would be caught and tried.
