PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) — Police say a bomb targeting members of an anti-Taliban political party has killed four people and wounded 20 in northwest Pakistan.
Police officer Zahir Shah says the bomb exploded as key members of the Awami National Party were arriving for a meeting in the city of Peshawar.
The party members included Ghulam Ahmad Bilour and his nephew Haroon Bilour, whose father was one of the most senior ANP leaders and was killed in a suicide attack in December.
Shah said Ghulam Ahmad Bilour was wounded in Tuesday’s attack but was in stable condition.
The Pakistani Taliban have specifically threatened to target members of the ANP and two other secular parties in the run-up to parliamentary elections on May 11.
