Muslim terrorists in Pakistan butchered twenty five people in another jihadist attack, as we read in one report:
A bomb exploded next to a convoy of the deputy chairman of the Pakistan Senate on Friday (May 12) in the violence-plagued province of Baluchistan, killing at least 25 people, officials said, with dozens more being rushed to hospital for treatment.
At least 35 people were wounded in the blast near the town of Mastung, 50 km (30 miles) from the provincial capital of Quetta.
Senator Abdul Ghafoor Haideri, the deputy chairman of the upper house of parliament, told Reuters minutes after the explosion he believed he was the target and he had sustained minor injuries.
Haideri is a member of Jamiat e Ulema Islam, a right-wing Sunni Islamist political party that is part of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s coalition government.
Mastung police official Ghazanfar Ali Shah said by telephone that the convoy appeared to have been hit by a suicide bomber.
Islamic State (ISIS) said it had carried out a deadly bomb attack next to a convoy of the deputy chairman of the Pakistan Senate in the province of Baluchistan.
The group’s Amaq news agency said a bomber wearing an explosive vest was responsible for the attack.
