Mastung blast: Security Forces make big breakthrough

ISLAMABAD: The security forces have made a breakthrough in the Mastung blast that killed over 130 people.

Security Agencies arrested two facilitators involved in Mastung suicide attack, informed sources.

A suicide blast at a political rally of Nawab Siraj Raisani martyred 128 people and injured more than 150, in one of the deadliest attacks in the country's history.

The blast was the latest in a string of attacks that have spurred fears of violence ahead of the general election on July 25, and came hours after four people were killed and 39 injured in a bomb blast targetting a JUI-F convoy in Bannu on Friday. <link> <link>

The suicide attacker arrived in Chaghi from Afghanistan two days back. The alleged facilitators provided their residence to the Afghan suicide bomber for a brief stay. The suicide attacker was seated in the first row of the public gathering.
