Mastang Attack : A suicide bomber had detonated as local politician Siraj Raisani, a candidate of the Balochistan Awami Party (BAP), spoke to a crowd of supporters in Mastung District. Raisani was among those embraced shahadat.
The latest clip, however, shows the seconds just before blast when the BAP is meeting party workers and admirers and shaking their hands. Right after one of the attendees raises his mobile phone to record the moment — an action captured in the frame of the new video — the explosion hits, cutting the video to shaken shots of the aftermath.
Further, Qaim Lashari, the deputy commissioner (DC) for Mastung District, confirmed to Geo News that the death toll had risen to 149, making it the second most lethal attack in the country’s history, as top politicians joined a day of national mourning.
At least 186 others were wounded, he said.
