More than a hundred people have been killed in a suicide bombing in Pakistan as tensions rise in the country ahead of an election on July 25.
At least 128 people died in the explosion at an election rally in the southwestern province of Baluchistan.
Siraj Raisani, a candidate running for a provincial assembly, was among those killed in the town of Mastung.
It was the deadliest attack in Pakistan in four years.
Hours after the bombing, former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was arrested after making a high-profile return to the country.
Sharif was given a 10-year prison sentence in absentia on corruption charges last week, but he accuses Pakistan's powerful security establishment of conspiring against him before the election.
The former PM was taken into custody along with his daughter Maryam in the northern city of Lahore.
They were later taken to Islamabad from where they are expected to launch an appeal and apply for bail.
Retaliations soon to follow....
More of a political assassination than a suicide bombing, no?
probably some middle aged white guy upset over obamacare - Nanny Bloomturd
eh, one candidate got murdered this week because he spoke out against islamonazism.
Was Siraj Raisani going to testify on the Clinton Foundation?
lol...good post. I can't for the life of me figure out why anyone would gather for a rally or go to busy market place anywhere in the middle east.
These muzzies are just freakin nuts. Well, come to think of it, thugs in the inner city loop here in Houston are just as bad. lol
Muzzie savages aren’t even safe from each other. What a s***hole failed state.
Mohammedism, no greater retrograde force...
Just stay away from dangerous places
Like meh hi co!
The same may soon go for Dearbornistan and Minneapolistan.
When you think about it Islamabad is a spot on name. If you go to wiki it explains it derives from Islam and abad which means city of Islam but from an english perspective it takes on a more truthful meaning. :)
muzzies killing muzzies. Not worthy of the news. Only when a human puts a ham sandwich on the doorknob of a mosque - that makes the news as a hate crime.
I mean who cares about a bunch of ragheads, when DONALD TRUMP
That’s about right. Trump trash trumps all. Real or imagined.
Can you imagine if muzzies had hate crime laws? Half of them would be in jail and the other half indicted.
Pakistan is more Southwest Asian than middle east but I get your meaning.
Still Muzzies...right? lol
