Bombs kill more than 130 after Pakistan election rallies targeted

Explosion in Pakistan leaves at least 36 dead, wounded

One of those killed in the blast was Siraj Raisani, a candidate of the Balochistan Awami Party, who appeared to have an over-the-top obsession with India. Raisani and at least 128 others were killed in the attack, while over 200 were injured.

Raisani, who was a candidate from PB-35 (Mastung), was among those killed in the attack.

The Islamic State group has a muted presence in Pakistan but has carried out brutal attacks there in the past, including the blast at a Sufi shrine in February previous year which killed almost 90 people.

Three deadly back-to-back attacks on election rallies in the restive provinces of Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa that killed two prominent political leaders along with around 150 civilians have renewed concerns that violence could disrupt the elections scheduled for July 25.

Such concern and empathy from the people of Pakistan over a large number of lives being ruthlessly taken away is heartwarming to say the least.

Trump asked Russian Federation to hack his opponent, and Russian Federation did "f$3 or the first time", as the indictment says. Trump told the Washington Post he chose to terminate Stone, "because he no longer serves a useful function for my campaign".

"It has never been more true that Pakistan's security establishment needs to focus on security, not politics", tweeted analyst Mosharraf Zaidi as mourners gathered to bury their dead in Mastung Saturday.

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.

"Electioneering is a public activity requiring a guarantee of public safety", the Dawn newspaper said in an editorial that urged the state to embark on several security measures, including providing candidates with government security.

"We have established new check posts due to security threats and concerns and its aim is to prevent any terrorist attack".
