Shi'ites in south-western Pakistan today refused to bury their dead from a brutal terror attack until the government protects them from Sunni militants.
More than 120 people were killed in bombings on Thursday.
The worst was at a snooker club in Queeta, where 86 died.
Many were killed by a second bomb as they rushed to help wounded people.
Elsewhere in Quetta, 12 people were killed and more than 40 hurt after a bomb hidden in a bag blew up a vehicle carrying soldiers.
And a third blast targeted a mosque in the north-western city of Mingora, killing 22 people and wounding more than 70.
Sunni militant group the United Baloch Army said it carried out the Quetta attacks.
