BEIRUT: The Islamic State militant group accepted responsibility on Monday for the suicide bombing attack that tore through a hospital in Quetta, killing at least 70 people, the IS-linked Amaq news agency reported.

Amaq said, "A martyrdom bomber of the Islamic State detonates his explosive belt on a group of personnel belonging to the Ministry of Justice and the Pakistani Police in the city of Quetta."

The bomber struck a crowd of some 200 people gathered at the Civil Hospital in the Balochistan provincial capital of Quetta after the fatal shooting of a senior local lawyer took place earlier in the day.
