Five supporters of a political leader were injured when their motorcade was targeted with a roadside bomb in the restive Balochistan province of southwest Pakistan on Friday.
The incident in Bolan district targeted the motorcade of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam leader Hashim Shahwani, who is a candidate for upcoming polls to the Balochistan assembly.
Shahwani escaped unhurt, security officials told the media. The injured persons were taken to a nearby hospital.
No group claimed responsibility for the attack. Three Pakistani provinces – Balochistan,Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa and Sindh have witnessed a spike in violence ahead of the landmark May 11 polls that will mark the first democratic transition in the country’s history.
The banned Pakistani Taliban have warned people not to vote in the polls, saying the democratic system is “un-Islamic”.
