ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s President, Dr. Arif Alvi, on Wednesday strongly condemned the blast incidents targeting election candidates in Southwestern Balochistan that left at least 28 people dead and over 40 others injured.

In a statement, the President expressed profound sadness and extended heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims. He offered prayers for the departed souls and urged for Allah’s mercy and peace upon them.
