Earlier, at least 53 people were killed following a loud explosion inside the Civil Hospital and over 50 people have been injured in the attack.
“The blast occurred after a number of lawyers and some journalists had gathered at the hospital following the death of the president of the Balochistan Bar Association in a separate shooting incident early this morning," said Balochistan Home Secretary Akbar Harifal.
It is suspected that the attack was carried out by a suicide bomber, Balochistan Home Minister Sarfaraz Bugti told media.
Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif has strongly condemned the assassination of Shahzad Khan and Quetta blast.
