  • Report of the incident has also been sent to interior ministry said deputy commissioner

The militant Islamic State (IS) group claimed responsibility for the political rally attack in Baluchistan, making the announcement via the group's AMAQ news agency.

Mushahidullah Khan, a spokesman for Sharif's Pakistan Muslim League party, said Saturday that the ex-prime minister and his daughter were being held in Adiala Jail, located outside the capital of Islamabad.

Pakistan Prime Minister's Office, in a statement, on Saturday said in view of tragic incidents of terrorist attacks at Peshawar on Tuesday and in Mastung and Bannu on Friday, the government has announced to observe one day official mourning throughout the country on Sunday. Both he and his daughter face sentences of ten and seven years in prison respectively. But analysts have long warned that Pakistan is not getting to the root causes of extremism, and that militants retain the ability to carry out spectacular attacks like the blast in Mastung.

Pakistanis across the country are observing a day of mourning for the victims of the horrific weekend attacks that killed 132 people, including a provincial assembly candidate, during an election rally in the country's southwest.

Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton shine at Wimbledon - minus their husbands
Williams was vying for an eighth career Wimbledon title, after missing the Grand Slam tennis tournament a year ago while pregnant. And when she became No 1 as a 28-year-old in 2016 she was the oldest women to claim the top ranking for the first time.

Dr. Waseem Baig, a spokesperson of Civil Hospital Quetta, said that 131 people brought to the three health facilities of the city had either died on their way to hospitals or during their treatment.

"It has never been more true that Pakistan's security establishment needs to focus on security, not politics", tweeted analyst Mosharraf Zaidi as mourners gathered to bury their dead in Mastung on Saturday.

Four people were killed and 32 others were injured in the bombing, which took place in North Waziristan, close to the border with Afghanistan.

The party's past five years in government have been characterized by discord with the military, which has ruled Pakistan for almost half its 71-year history. Caretaker Home Minister Agha Umar Bungalzai told The Associated Press another 300 people were wounded in Friday's bombing.

What Meghan Markle's New Signature Says About Her Life as a Royal
Traditionally, members of the royal family are supposed to refrain from showing any political views and are not allowed to vote. The original gown has been worn for all Royal christenings since, including The Queen, her children and her grandchildren.

He admitted that the massacre in Mastung would affect voter turnout in the election, though he pointed out that "security institutions have already taken steps to restore people's confidence in the election process". Security is being cited as the reason.

Mr Durrani is running against popular former politician Imran Kan and is a candidate of Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal, an election alliance of radical religious groups.

"These attacks are cowardly attempts to deprive the Pakistani people of their democratic rights", it said.

"We have established new check posts due to security threats and concerns and its aim is to prevent any terrorist attack".
