Funerals held in Pakistan for victims of Quetta attack

Funerals were held on Tuesday  for victims of an attack on a police training academy in the southwestern Pakistani city of Quetta, which officials say killed at least 60 people and wounded more than 100.

Hundreds of trainees were stationed at the facility when masked gunmen stormed the academy on the outskirts of Quetta late on Monday (October 24).

Some cadets were taken hostage during the raid, which lasted nearly five hours. Most of the dead were cadets.

Militant group Islamic State on Tuesday said its fighters were behind the assault. But Pakistani officials earlier said another Sunni extremist group, Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, was probably behind the raid.
