At least 20 people were killed Monday after a bomb ripped through a major hospital in the southwest Pakistani city of Quetta, an AFP photographer at the scene said.

Many of the dead were lawyers and journalists who had earlier gathered to cover a protest over the murder of Balochistan Bar Association president Bilal Anwar Kasi, the photographer said.
