Quetta, 24 Oct 2016: Three militants wearing bomb vests storm a police training centre in Quetta Monday night and martyr at least 61 police cadets and wound another 117. The three attackers are reportedly killed.

The facility housed 600 police cadets at that time, Balochistan Home Minister Sarfraz Bugti said.

A major security operation lasted for hours after the attackers entered the building and opened fire. 250 cadets were evacuated.

IG FC Major General Sher Afghan said initial investigation suggests that the terrorists were affiliated with Lashkar-e-Jhangvi Al Alami, a splinter Taliban group.
