The explosion occurred as Khanzada was conducting a “jirga" or tribal council in his home district. Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif condemned the attack and asked local authorities and hospitals to provide the wounded all necessary treatment. The group Laskhar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ) claimed responsibility for the attack, saying it was revenge for the death of its chief commander Malik Ishaq last month.
