Bomb blast kills 4 ahead of Pakistan vote

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (AP) — A bombing outside an election office in northwestern Pakistan killed four people and wounded 12 others Saturday, an opposition party spokesman said.

The reports came from party workers in an area bordering Afghanistan, said Farhatullah Babar, a spokesman for the Pakistan People’s Party of slain opposition leader Benazir Bhutto.

The explosion came two days before parliamentary elections considered crucial to restoring democracy after eight years of military rule under President Pervez Musharraf.

Zafar Ali, a party supporter at the scene, said the explosion occurred after a car rammed into an election office. Watch how the elections are shaping up

Several of our party members are lying in a pool of blood, he said. We are taking the injured and dumping them into pickup vans to bring them to the hospital. E-mail to a friend
