Blast hits convoy of Pakistan Senate deputy, 10 dead

People mourn after funeral prayers of a victim of Friday's suicide attack in southwest Baluchistan province in Islamabad Pakistan Saturday

Three months later, more than 80 people died in a suicide attack on a Sufi shrine in Sindh province that IS said it carried out.

The most severely injured were airlifted to hospital in the provincial capital, Quetta.

Local government official Munir Raisani said that along with the 25 killed, more than 30 people, including some policemen, were wounded in the attack.

All the injured persons were rushed to District Hospital Mastung.

According to reports, the deputy chairman Senate was returning from an event at Ittehad Bainul Muslimeen at Jama Masjid Hammadia when his vehicle was targeted.

Television footage showed Haideri's vehicle was badly damaged. It's the largest of all four provinces where a number of militant groups operate, while ethnic Baloch insurgents often attack government installations.

"It is a message to them that anyone who goes with the government will be targeted", he said, adding that it could also be that the IS targeted Haideri because of his party's close alliance with Afghanistan's Taliban.

Daesh claimed it had carried out a deadly bomb attack on the convoy, with the group's Amaq news agency saying that a bomber wearing an explosive vest was responsible for the attack.

Deputy Chairman Senate Abdul Ghafoor Hyderi's convoy was the worst hit in the attack.
