Suicide blast at Pakistan rally kills 18

By RIAZ KHAN, Associated Press Writer

PESHAWAR, Pakistan – A suicide bomber struck at an election rally in northwestern Pakistan Saturday, killing at least 18 people and wounding more than 25, police and civilian officials said.

The blast occurred at a rally of the Awami National Party — a secular, ethnic Pashtun group — in the town of Charsadda in the turbulent North West Frontier province, where Islamic extremists operate.

Area police chief Mohammed Khan said 18 people died. Local television stations quoted party officials as saying 20 were killed.

Interior Minister Hamid Nawaz said the attack was believed carried out by a suicide bomber who detonated his explosives “very close to the stage” where party officials were assembled.

Afrasiab Khattak, the party’s provincial leader and a prominent human rights champion, was addressing the rally but told Dawn television that he was not hurt.

Nawaz said Islamic militants were threatening all the political parties in the northwest ahead of the Feb. 18 parliamentary elections.

“They are against everyone,” he told Dawn News TV…

Yes, that is so true. They are “against everyone.”

Even their allies in the America-hating left and their minions in the media.

But that won’t stop their allies from trying to help them at every turn.
