At least 14 killed, 50 injured in Pakistan election rally bomb attack

At least 14 people were killed in a bomb attack at a political rally in north western Pakistan, officials said. Some 50 more people were injured.

The blast went off during the right-wing religious Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI) party rally for its candidate Munir Orakzai in a Pakistani tribal area.

Other reports said the number of victims might be higher, with Al Jazeera reporting 15 people killed.

The bomb was apparently planted near the main stage of the event, AP said quoting a local government official. Two JUI party leaders reportedly escaped from the scene unhurt. No one has immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.

The latest in the series of attacks targeting political parties and their candidates, it raises the number of Pakistani election campaign victims to more than 70, according to an AFP tally.
The Medial Superintendent of Agency Hospital of the area said that at least six bodies and 25 injured were shifted to the hospital.
According to a hospital official, the number of causalities could rise as many people were in critical condition.
Rescuers and security forces rushed to the site and shifted the bodies and the injured to the hospital.
At the time of the blast, hundreds of people were present to listen to their leaders contesting for the country's May 11 elections.
The bomb exploded with a big bang at the conclusion of the public gathering near the stage where two JUI-F leaders were sitting but they remained unhurt in the attack.
The nature of the blast was not confirmed yet but a higher officer said that the blast was conducted with an improvised explosive device.
No group or militant organization has claimed responsibility for the attack yet.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
