The head of the Pakistan National Awami Party (NAP), Mukkaram Shah was killed on Sunday as a result of explosion of a home-made bomb placed on the highway, reported the local police.
The explosion happened in the Swad valley controlled by the “Taliban” movement, when Shah’s car was proceeding towards the city of Mingora for election campaigning for presidential and local elections planned for May 2013. NAP is the left-wing, socialist party which is a part of ruling coalition of Pakistan. Talibs have regularly organised terrorist acts involving party leaders.
