Pakistan blast kills 25,Deputy Chairman Senate injured

Soldiers guard a auto after a bombing next to a convoy of deputy chairman of the Pakistan Senate, Maulana Abdul Ghafoor Haideri, in Mastung, Pakistan May 12, 2017.

The province, especially its capital Quetta, has also been facing a deadly wave of sectarian violence over the past decade. Television images showed people rushing injured to hospital and a few badly damaged vehicles.

Several police were among the wounded.

The Foreign Office of Turkey Friday condemned the terrorist attack targeting the motorcade of Deputy Senate Chairman, Maulana Abdul Ghafoor Haideri in Balochistan.

Lahore: The Lahore High Court has asked the Punjab government to explain the extension of house arrest of Mumbai attack mastermind and Jamaat-ud-Dawah chief Hafiz Saeed without the approval from a judicial review board. Security services did not immediately blame any militant group, but in the past authorities have blamed other groups for attacks claimed by IS.

President Mamnoon Hussain has strongly condemned the terrorist attack in Mastung today in which several people were killed.

Haideri is a top official of the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam Fazl, one of the country's most powerful religious political parties.

"We don't have any clear planning or strategy to deal with extremist groups", he said. Pakistan has also been accused of providing sanctuaries to Afghanistan's Taliban, a charge it denies.




At least 25 people were killed and 35 others were injured in a blast in Mastung area in Pakistan's restive Balochistan province on Friday, according to PTI.

It was the third major attack by the IS in Baluchistan.

At least 37 people who received serious wounds from the blast were transferred to Quetta, said Dr Ahmed.

Deputy Chairman Senate Abdul Ghafoor Hyderi's convoy was the worst hit in the attack.

He said that the senator remained safe, as he was not sitting in his own vehicle.

Senate Chairman Raza Rabbani and Interior Minister Chaudhary Nisar Ali Khan also condemned the attack.
