16 JULY 2018 (SOURCE: INDEPENDENT) -University students have answered a hospital’s desperate plea for blood donations in southwestern Pakistan where 128 people were killed and hundreds injured by a suicide bomber during an election rally.

The main hospital in the provincial capital of Quetta appealed for blood donations after being overwhelmed by bodies and casualties.
