CCTV of the Twin blast that hit Quetta city within minutes on 10th of January 2013
You can see a men running into the building seconds before the first blast(0:14). This killed about 10 to 20 people and injuring scores more.
Then you the video continues to record the ambulance and volunteers including police officials reaching the area and commencing rescue. 8:55 mark you see a white sedan with black tinted windows rushing behind two ambulances to the scene. little do those innocent helpers know that this is packed with explosive. they are too busy helping the injured. Then you see volunteers talking to the driver to back up the vehicle to make room for more ambulances, then the car is seen backed up but then just as the volunteers are distracted the cars tries to get in the packed crowd and then(10:46) the camera goes dead at which point the explosive is detonated and 120+ civilians lost their lives.
The following day the whole hazara Shia comunity held Sit-In protest against the killings. They also went on hunger strike until the failed corrupt government was dissolved. They vowed not to bury the dead till their demands were met. Mothers, sisters, fathers,brothers, old and young were sitting with their dead family member coffin's outside in -8 weather. they went without sleep for a complete four days until their demands were met.
This was a first in the history of Pakistan where not a single glass was broken not a single bullet was fired and the coffins were not buried till four days. on the third day of Sit-In the whole countrymen in Pakistan took notice of this revolutionary protest, then their were sit-in protest appearing in every corner of the country. Hazara shia diaspora from around the world also took part in the protests.
This resulted in the government being dissolved and governor rule was implemented. Now the police powers have been given to Army's Frontier Corps. Operations are promised to start against the terrorist group named Lashkare jhangvi who claimed responsibility for the attacks.
