Zeb and a meeting of party officials and prospective electoral candidates discussing arrangements for the elections at his office were the target, senior police official Imran Shahid said.

Officials said one of the bombers blew himself up at the gate, outside Zeb’s office, and the second managed to enter the control room, home to the switchboard.

Jamil Shah, spokesman for the government-run Lady Reading Hospital, said five people were killed and seven others admitted with serious injuries.

Four security officials and a civilian man aged about 60 were among the dead, he said.
