    ISLAMABAD: A powerful blast ripped through a bus of a women's university in the southwestern Pakistani city of Quetta on Saturday, killing 11 students and injuring 22 others.

    The incident occurred within the campus of Sardar Bahadur Khan Women's University at Brewery Road.

    Students and faculty members were in the stationary bus when a bomb planted inside went off.

    They were waiting to go home after the end of classes.

    Police officials said 11 girls, all students of the university, were killed.

    Twenty-two injured people, most of them students, were taken to a nearby hospital.

    Doctors described the condition of three of them as serious.

    Several girls sustained severe burn injuries as the explosion triggered a fire in the bus.

    Footage on television showed flames and black smoke emerging from the bus, which was reduced to a blackened heap of metal. Its roof was blown off and hung over the front.

    Security forces cordoned off the area and launched a search operation.

    The blast caused panic in the area and the university was evacuated.

    No group claimed responsibility for the attack.

    The blast occurred hours after militants attacked and destroyed a historic 121-year-old building in Ziarat, about 120 km from Quetta, that was used by Pakistan's founder Muhammad Ali Jinnah in the last days of his life.

    A policeman was killed in that attack, which was claimed by the Balochistan Liberation Army.

    Pakistan militants target women on bus, go after survivors at hospital

    Militants, including a female suicide bomber, attacked a university bus carrying women in southwestern Pakistan and then struck a hospital where the survivors were taken for treatment, authorities said Saturday.

    The militants laid siege to the Bolan medical complex in Quetta, holding hundreds of patients, physicians and nurses hostage as they battled security forces, authorities said.

    An intelligence official, who requested anonymity since he was not authorized to speak to media, told CNN a female suicide bomber carried out the bus attack.

    Twenty-eight people, including four militants, were killed in the siege at the hospital. The gunmen killed four security force members, a medical administrator, and the deputy commissioner of Quetta. Four nurses died in the crossfire, police said. Two militants blew themselves up, and two more died in a shootout, authorities said.

    Among the hospital patients were more than 20 people wounded in the university bus explosion, which killed at least 14 women, Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said.

    Several others were wounded in another blast that struck near the hospital's emergency room as the bus bombing victims were rushed in.

    "All the (bus) victims are women teachers and students," said Mir Zubair Mehmood, a police official in Quetta. The blast shattered the windows of offices and classrooms inside Sardar Bahadur Khan Women University.

    The university bus was parked at the school on the outskirts of Quetta, the capital of Balochistan province in southwestern Pakistan.

    There was no immediate claim of responsibility. But Pervez Rasheed, the country's information minister, said, "We do not think there is any foreign involvement in these attacks -- this looks like homegrown terrorists."

    U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon condemned the attacks, saying "violence against women and educators has increased in recent years. The aim being to keep girls from attaining a basic right to education."

    Ban called on Pakistan's new leader, Nawaz Sharif, to do "all possible to bring the perpetrators to justice."

    Earlier Saturday, assailants bombed the home of Pakistani founding father Muhammad Ali Jinnah in Balochistan, killing a police officer and wounding an employee, authorities said.

    The attack occurred in Ziarat, one of the country's top tourist spots, about 150 kilometers (93 miles) from Quetta. Jinnah spent the last days of his life at the home.
