QUETTA, Pakistan - Pakistan's Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, which intelligence officials say has become a major security threat, claimed responsibility for a sectarian attack on Shi'ites which killed 47 people in the city of Quetta on Saturday.

Officials said most of the dead were from Pakistan's Shi'ite minority, which has come under siege from Sunni extremist groups who seem to carry out sectarian attacks at will."The explosion was caused by an improvised explosive device fitted to a motorcycle," said Wazir Khan Nasir, deputy inspector general of police in Quetta. He said 130 people were wounded.



"This is a continuation of terrorism against Shi'ites."
