Suicide bomber kills senior leader of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf

In Pakistan, a former provincial minister and senior leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf was killed when a suicide bomber blew himself up near his car in the troubled Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province on Sunday. 

Police said, Ikramullah Gandapur, a candidate for the provincial assembly seat from PK-99 constituency, was on his way to an election meeting when the bomber targeted his vehicle in Dera Ismail Khan district. 

His driver was also killed in the attack while three bodyguards were badly injured.

In another incident on Sunday, Jamiat-Ulema-Islam-Fazl leader Akram Khan Durrani, a former Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa chief minister, also survived a second assassination attempt in less than 10 days. 

Durrani was to address a political convention when his vehicle was ambushed by unknown gunmen in his home district Bannu, bordering North Waziristan district.
This is the third attack on election candidates in Bannu district and second on Durrani ahead of the July 25 general election. 

The campaigning for the general election has been hit hard by terrorist attacks claimed by the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan and ISIS outfits.
