Referring to Raisani as a "soldier of Pakistan", General Bajwa said they had lost a die-hard, fearless patriot, who would be remembered for his commitment to and contributions for Pakistan. It is the deadliest terror strike in Pakistan this year.

Friday's bombing was the deadliest attack since militants from the Pakistani Taliban assaulted an army-run school in Peshawar in December 2014, killing 141 people, 132 of them children.

Caretaker home minister Agha Umar Bungalazi said 300 people were wounded in the bombing.

The military intensified operations against militants in the tribal areas along the border with Afghanistan in the wake of that attack, and security has improved dramatically.

Unidentified suspects on Sunday set ablaze election banners and posters belonging to the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on an overhead bridge in Lahore.
