Quetta: The Price of Sheltering Terror

By Ajit Kumar Singh

Terrorist violence in Quetta has had a significant sectarian overlay. In a prominent attack, at least 11 Shias were killed and another three were injured when their vehicle was attacked near a bus stop on Spiny Road in Quetta on July 30, 2011. In another attack, a suicide car bomb killed at least 11 Shias and injured 22, while they were celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr in Quetta on August 31, 2011. The bomber was apparently targeting a Shiite mosque, but could not get close enough because the road was blocked. The Quetta Shura-al Qaeda combine has plagued US-led forces fighting in Afghanistan. -- Ajit Kumar Singh
