QUETTA (AP) - The death toll in this southwestern city of Pakistan, from a bomb hidden in a water tank that ripped through a crowded vegetable market in a mostly Shiite neighborhood, increased to 81, officials said.

Nearly 200 others were injured. Police said many of those wounded in the explosion in Quetta remain in critical condition.

The blast, which police said targeted the country's minority Shiite Muslim sect, left many victims buried under rubble, but authorities did not know how many.
