MIRANSHAH -- A blast at the office of a Pakistani political party injured 10 people in North Waziristan Tuesday (July 3), as the campaign for nationwide polls on July 25 picks up.

The explosion occurred at an office of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) party.

"A huge explosion happened when I was inaugurating my election office in Razmak city," Malik Aurangzeb Khan, a PTI candidate from North Waziristan running for the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa provincial assembly, told AFP.

No militant group immediately claimed responsibility.
