Sharjah 24 – Reuters: A suicide bomber killed 140 people at an election rally in southwestern Pakistan in the second election-related attack on Friday, officials said, amid growing tensions over ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif's return ahead of the July 25 vote.
The bombing was the most deadly attack in Pakistan in over three years and is the third incident of election-related violence this week. 
Baluchistan Home Minister Agha Omer Bangulzai said that the death toll in the attack had risen to 128 people, with over 150 wounded. 
Senior police official Qaim Lashari had earlier said that more than 1000 people were in attendance at the rally.
