Generation of lawyers killed

Baluchistan is a place that desperately needs lawyers. About 60 lawyers were killed in one attack on Monday in Baluchistan’s capital, Quetta. They were packed into an emergency room where the body of another slain colleague lay, riddled with gunshot wounds. A widely circulated video showed lawyers milling about the hospital before an enormous explosion. A Pakistani Taliban offshoot claimed the attack, as did the Islamic State, though analysts say the latter’s claim is dubious. A generation of lawyers has been wiped out in Quetta, and it will leave Baluchistan, in more ways than one, lawless.
