A bomb blast ripped through a vegetable market in Pakistan's Quetta city early Friday, killing at least 16 people and injuring several others, media reports said.

Deputy Inspector General Abdul Razzaq Cheema said the blast, which occurred when the vegetable and fruit sacks were being loaded onto trucks by the traders, targeted the Hazara ethnic community.

At least 30 people were wounded in the blast in the southwestern city of Quetta, the capital of resource-rich Balochistan province, officials said.

Mir Zia Ullah Langau, the minister, said that 48 people were also injured in the blast that hit the busy market.

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, which took place in the Hazarganji neighbourhood, but Sunni militant groups have claimed similar bombings in the past against Shiites, whom they view as apostates deserving of death.

A team comprising senior officials of the Counterterrorism Department (CTD) has been set up to investigate the blast, the Dawn newspaper reported.

The sit-in started soon after the suicide blast; demanding an effective security plan to ensure the protection of the Hazara Shia community.

One police official said there were about 200 people taking part on Sunday, blocking the key arterial Western Bypass leading into Quetta.

No individual or group has so far claimed responsibility for the attack.

After a series of attacks, security forces started escorting Hazara buses to the market.

A harrowing terror attack in Quetta, Balochistan consumed more than 20 lives when a suicide bomber detonated explosives in the Hazarganji Market targetting the Shia minority community of Hazara.

"Targeted for their religion by sectarian armed groups, they have suffered many such tragedies over several years".

Violence in Pakistan has dropped significantly since the country's deadliest-ever militant attack, an assault on a school in the northwestern city of Peshawar in 2014 that killed more than 150 people, a lot of them children.

The DIG said that the test reports would be handed over to Balochistan Chief Minister Jam Kamal, but did not specify when they would be issued.
