Pakistan mourns victims of election rally bombing

A victim of the bomb blast in Balochistan is brought to a hospital in Quetta on Friday

Earlier on Friday, at least four people were killed and dozens of others were injured in another explosion in Bannu in Pakistan's Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.

Deputy Chief of Mission Chinese Embassy at Pakistan, Lijian Zhao has strongly condemned the Mastung attack that killed at least 128 people, including Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) candidate Nawabzada Siraj Raisani.

Sharif returned from London with his daughter Maryam to face a 10-year prison sentence on corruption charges, officials said.

Sharif, Maryam provided "B" class facilities in jail Pakistan's former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam spent their first night in the high-security Adiala Jail in Rawalpindi and the two VIP convicts were provided "B" class facilities, media reports said today, a day after their arrest. They are expected to appeal their conviction on Monday.

The Congress party on Saturday jumped on the Twitter to comment about former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's arrest and taunt Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi about his friendship with Sharif.

No group has yet claimed responsibility for that attack.

The toll from the deadliest attack on a campaign rally in Pakistan's restive Balochistan reached 130 today as the country's security establishment was under pressure to improve security and intelligence gathering to avoid further election carnage. "We will continue to stand with the people of Pakistan and the broader South Asia region in their fight against terrorism", she added.

And when Matthysse went down for the third time in the seventh, referee Kenny Bayless stepped in to stop the contest. Pacquiao meanwhile recorded his 60th career victory en route to his 11th world title.

Ahead of his return, police swept through Lahore, arresting scores of Sharif's Pakistan Muslim League party workers to prevent them from greeting him at the airport.

Following the attacks, analysts called for the country's armed forces to focus on security challenges rather than politics, in the wake of myriad allegations that the military was meddling in the country's upcoming polls.

Durrani is running in the July 25 vote against popular former lawmaker Imran Khan.

The attacks came days after a suicide bomber dispatched by the Pakistani Taliban killed secular politician Haroon Ahmed Bilour and 20 others at his rally in the northwestern city of Peshawar.

The politician -Akram Khan Durrani, a candidate of the Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal (MMA) party - survived.

"These attacks are cowardly attempts to deprive the Pakistani people of their democratic rights", State Department Spokesperson Heather Nauert said.
