QUETTA, Pakistan (AP) - At least 115 people are dead after a series of bombings in Pakistan.
The victims include more than 80 who died in a sectarian attack on a billiard hall in the southwestern city of Quetta.
It's been one of the deadliest days in recent years in Pakistan, where the government faces separate insurgencies in the northwest and southwest.
Pakistan is also home to many enemies of the United States who've been targeted with drone attacks. Pakistani intelligence officials said a U.S. missile strike earlier today killed five suspected militants. It was the seventh such attack in two weeks.
The billiard hall was located in an area dominated by Shiite Muslims. A police officer says most of the dead and wounded were from that minority sect.
