A suicide bomb attack at an election rally in the northwestern Pakistani city of Peshawar has killed at least 14 people, including prominent local politician Haroon Bilour, police said.
The attack on Tuesday at a campaign event organised by the Awami National Party (ANP) also wounded at least 65 people, according to the local police chief.
Bilour was a provincial assembly candidate for the July 25 general elections. His father, Bashir Bilour, also a prominent ANP politician, was killed by a suicide bomber in 2012.
Police said the bomber struck when Bilour was about to address some 200 supporters.
"According to our initial investigation, it was a suicide attack and Haroon Bilour ... was the target," police official Shafqat Malik told AFP news agency.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for Tuesday's attack.
