A breakaway faction of the Taliban in Pakistan has claimed responsibility for the suicide attack at a hospital in Quetta which killed at least 64 people.
In a statement, Ahsanullah Ahsan, spokesman for Jamaat-ul-Ahrar militant group, also said their men killed Bilal Kasi, the president of Baluchistan Bar Association.
They then targeted the mourners who had gathered at the government-run Civil Hospital in the south-western city to pay their respects to Mr Kasi.
The group has been behind several acts of terrorism in Pakistan in recent years. The claim could not be independently verified.
