The Pakistani Taliban have condemned the polls as un-Islamic and directly threatened the main parties in the outgoing ruling coalition led by the secular Pakistan People’s Party (PPP).
The suicide bomber struck early yesterday in restive Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province.
“We have confirmation of the death of one woman in the suicide attack near Domail police station in Bannu. More than 15 people have been wounded, including six policemen and two kids,” local police chief Abdul Ghafoor Afridi said.
Afridi said seven houses and part of the police station also collapsed due to the impact of the blast.
