KARACHI, Pakistan — Pakistani police said on Tuesday that they had arrested 170 suspects after a weekend bombing in Quetta that targeted a Shiite Muslim area.

According to security sources, four people, including a bomb-maker, were killed by police during the round-up earlier in the day, the BBC reported.

Local media reported that the four men killed were assassins who had been operating in Quetta against the Hazara community.

The round-up occurred after Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf ordered a security operation in the southwestern city in the wake of the Saturday bombing, which killed at least 84 Shiites. According to television reports in Pakistan, the number of dead from the blast is currently 90.
