He said Mr Haideri is in a stable condition at a hospital in Quetta, the capital of Baluchistan province.

Footage broadcast on Dunya TV showed injured being transported to hospitals, and several vehicles lying damaged in the middle of the road.

Several police were among the dozens wounded by the blast.

At least 25 people are dead and many others feared injured in an explosion in Balochistan's Mastung area near a mosque on Friday shortly after jummah prayers, Dawn reported.

The ISIS extremist group later claimed responsibility for the bombing.

A local government official and a senior police official confirmed to AFP that it was a suicide bombing and the attacker came riding a motorcycle and blew himself up close to Haideri's vehicle.

It must also be mentioned that renowned politicians including JI Chief Siraj-ul-Haq, Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar, Punjab CM Shehbaz Sharif, Senate Chairman Raza Rabbani, PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto, PAT Chief Tahir-ul-Qadri and others inquired about Haideri s health and expressed grief at the tragic suicide attack.

Haideri is a member of the right-wing religious Jamaat Ulema Islam party's Fazl faction (JUI-F), and has been a senator since 2008.

"Many of our dear companions have been martyred [in this attack]", he said, adding that, "We have to continue to work for this country and the stability of Islam".

At least 25 people were killed and more than 30 injured in a blast at Mastung in Pakistan's Balochistan province.

According to the Radio Pakistan website, Rabbani termed the incident a "suicide attack".

Baluchistan borders Afghanistan and Iran, and officials in both the countries have long alleged militants waging terrorist attacks on their soils operate out of the Pakistani province. "There are many casualties as there were many people in the convoy", he told Reuters.

"It was a very powerful explosion just as we came out and sat in the vehicle". The death toll may rise. Associated Press writers Munir Ahmed and Zarar Khan in Islamabad and Maamoun Youssef in Cairo contributed to this report. If you would like to discuss another topic, look for a relevant article.
