8 people have been killed after gunmen opened fire on a bus carrying Shia Muslims in the Pakistani city of Quetta.

A bus carrying members of the city's Hazara community was targeted outside a local vegetable market.

Police told the media that 4 gunmen killed 6 men in a minibus, before chasing down another two, and shooting them dead.

Sunni militants regularly attack members of the city's Shia community.

Hundreds of Shia Hazaras in Quetta have been killed in such attacks over the last several years, but no group has yet said it carried out this latest attack.
