ISLAMABAD - The death toll of the suicide blast that hit a public rally in Pakistan's northwest provincial capital of Peshawar on Tuesday night rose to 21 on Wednesday, officials said, in the first major attack ahead of July 25 polls.

A local leader of the Awami National Party, or ANP, Haroon Bilour, was among those killed in the attack in the city of Peshawar late on Tuesday, officials have confirmed.

The bombing came hours after the Pakistan military spokesman said there were security threats ahead of national elections.
