Islamabad (August 01,2023) : A bomb blast at a rally in Pakistan killed at least 44 people and wounded dozens more on Monday. The blast took place in the city of Quetta, which is the capital of Balochistan province. The rally was being held by the Balochistan National Party-Mengal (BNP-M), a political party that is opposed to the government. The party's leader, Sardar Akhtar Mengal, was among those injured in the blast.

The blast was reportedly caused by a suicide bomber who detonated his explosives near the stage where the rally was being held. The bomber was killed in the blast, but his identity has not yet been released. The attack is the latest in a series of terrorist attacks in Pakistan. In recent years, the country has been hit by a number of deadly bombings, including attacks on mosques, schools, and markets.

The government has blamed the attacks on a number of terrorist groups, including the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and the Islamic State (IS). The attack has been condemned by the government and by the international community. The United Nations Secretary-General, António Guterres, called the attack "a heinous act of terrorism." The bombing is a reminder of the ongoing threat of terrorism in Pakistan. The government has vowed to bring the perpetrators to justice.
