AFP and Reuters, QUETTA, Pakistan

There was fury in the Pakistani press yesterday, both at the perpetrators and the security forces for failing to prevent the third major atrocity in Quetta in six months.

Dawn, the country’s leading English-language newspaper, said the state’s shortcomings had been shown once again.

“That the state has again failed both at the level of intelligence-gathering and preventing a terrorist attack from succeeding is also obvious,” it said in an editorial.
