United Nations: UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has condemned the terror attack in Pakistan that left 20 people dead, saying "no cause can justify such violence".
"The secretary-general strongly condemns the attacks in Quetta and Ziarat, Pakistan, in which at least 20 civilians were reportedly killed and many more injured," said a statement from his office.
"He deplores the heinous nature of the attacks on a university bus carrying women students and educators and a hospital facility, as well as the heritage Quaid Azam Residency which has a historical importance as a former home of Muhammad Ali Jinnah," he added.
"No cause can justify such violence," Xinhua quoted the statement as saying.
"The secretary-general notes with dismay that violence against women and educators has increased in recent years, the aim being to keep girls from attaining the basic right to education."
