KHAR, Pakistan (AP) — A suicide bombing at an election rally in Pakistan has claimed the lives of at least 54 people, including five children, and left nearly 200 others wounded. The attack took place in the district of Bajur, which has a strong presence of Islamist groups and borders Afghanistan. The rally was organized by the Jamiat Ulema Islam party, which has ties to the Afghan and Pakistani Taliban. No one has claimed responsibility for the bombing yet, but initial investigations suggest the involvement of the Islamic State group’s regional affiliate or breakaway factions of the Pakistani Taliban. The attack is seen as reflecting divisions between different Islamist groups in the region. The Pakistani military had previously cleared Bajur of militants in 2016, but the Jamiat Ulema Islam party, led by hard-line cleric Fazlur Rehman, remains a potent political force. The bombing has caused widespread shock and grief, with mourners attending funerals and expressing their condolences. The incident highlights the security challenges faced by Pakistan ahead of upcoming fall elections..
