    The death toll is expected to rise as many of the wounded are in a critical condition.

    Local media reports suggest that the blast could have been a suicide attack, but police are investigating.

    Senior police official Abdul Qudoos Kalwar told The Associated Press news agency that four children were among the dead.

    Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has condemned the incident and ordered an immediate inquiry.

    The attack came as Mr Sharif visited the city of Karachi, the capital of Singh province.”

    • Yes, but compared to George Soros’ funding of leftist-ratholes that infest both Israel and communities in the Diaspora, it’s a drop in the bucket. Poured clumsily.

      Bibi will be re-elected, but it’s the coalition that’s up for grabs. How much can he be ham-strung by the coalition-to-be? What sorts of compromises will he have to make?

      Coalition governments stink. Ask Geert Wilders.

      • The only good thing about the coming Greek collapse that will probably start the collapse of the worlds economy is that they have managed to beat Obama to the collapse. We won’t be at fault this time.
