A Pakistani official says the death toll in the evening bombing at a vegetable market in the city of Quetta has jumped to 60.

Quetta police chief Zubair Mahmood gave the updated figure a few hours after a bomb ripped through a crowded vegetable market Saturday evening.

Some 180 people were also wounded in the attack, which occurred in a mostly Shiite Muslim area.
