The deputy leader of Pakistan’s Senate escaped an assassination attempt this afternoon when a suicide bomber targeted his convoy in the country’s southwestern Baluchistan province, killing 25 people and wounding dozens more.
ISIS took responsibility for the attack on its official Amaq News Agency.
According to a local government official, Munir Raisani, the bomber struck soon after the senator, Abdul Ghafoor Haideri’s convoy left a madrassa, an Islamic religious school, in the town of Mastung, not far from the provincial capital of Quetta.
