A Pakistani MP from Pakistan Muslim League-Q party survived a shoe bomb attack last Friday, while attending mosque prayers.
Ahmedan Bugti had left his shoes outside, as is the custom for Muslims going in for prayers.
Someone planted explosives in his shoe, and detonated it as he was outside putting his shoes back on.
His leg was badly wounded as were twelve other people, who were nearby.
Violence has been on the increase in the Baluchistan area with separatist’s demanding more autonomy, greater gas revenue sharing, Islamic militancy, and the fighting between the Sunni majority and the Shiite minority.
