A leader of a key opposition party in Pakistan was killed along with his brother when a bomb blast ripped through their vehicle in the restive Balochistan province, according to the police. Awami National Party (ANP) leader Abdul Razzaq and his brother Abdul Khaliq were on their way to Pishin to attend a public rally when the explosion took place along the Harnai Shahrag road yesterday, a police officer said.
