Imran Khan party fights Pakistan election from jail and in secret

Foreign Affairs Correspondent

Bombs have torn through two election offices in southwest Pakistan – killing at least 26 people, a day before the country elects a new parliament.

The attacks targeted the offices of a political party and an independent candidate in Balochistan.

The run-up to the vote has seen sporadic violence, and a massive crackdown on supporters of former Prime Minister Imran Khan – who was handed multiple prison sentences last week.
