10 January 2013

Samaa TV cameraman Shaikh and NNI photographer Igbal were killed in the twin blasts in Quetta, the capital of Pakistan's restive Baluchistan province.  They died in the second blast as they rushed to cover the first explosion which took place on Alamdar Road in Quetta at a snooker club and killed 42 people.

Saifur Rehman, a senior reporter with Samaa TV, was also seriously injured in the blasts  and died two days later.
