A suicide bomber in the city of Quetta in western Pakistan has killed at least 63 people and injured more than 100 others.
The attacker blew himself up in the emergency ward of Civil Hospital, NPR's Abdul Sattar reports.
"Most of the victims are lawyers, journalists and common citizens," Abdul says.
Quetta is the capital of the province of Baluchistan, which is home to a number of militant groups, according to Abdul. The Quetta Shura, a group of leaders of the Afghan Taliban, is believed to be based in the city.
