Report: String of deadly blasts hit Quetta, Pakistan

At least nine people were injured in two successive explosions in the southwestern Pakistani city of Quetta, CNN affiliate Geo TV said Thursday. A Geo TV photojournalist is among the injured, Geo TV said.

Earlier in the day, 11 people were killed and 27 others were injured when a bomb planted in a vehicle near a security checkpoint in the center of Quetta exploded, police spokesman Wazir Khan Nasir said.

    Good morning@banasy@chrissy
    lol@chrissy. Assad does need to be taken out, Iran has to be invaded. Problems solved. World would at last be at peace. We need not concern ourselves with what we have done to places like Iraq, Afghanistan & Pakistan.

    Unending cycle of violence, last decade and plus written in blood, tens of thousands of innocents killed, generations to remember the death & destruction. Propaganda, hatred & fear. Legacy of the war on terror.

    Islam prohibits art, sculpture, music, and pictures. While it is difficult to express oneself, Pakistanis do have a need to express themselves just like everyone else. Pakistanis are just different and they have a different way of expressing themselves. Think of a Pakistani bomb scene as a canvas which is painted with a strong preference toward the red color.
