A suicide bomber killed at least 31 people near a polling center as Pakistanis voted Wednesday in a knife-edge general election pitting cricket hero Imran Khan against the party of jailed ex-Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. The Daesh (ISIS) militant group claimed responsibility for the attack that hospital officials said killed 29 people and wounded 35 in the western city of Quetta. Sharif's party had called for voting to be extended by an hour, saying people were still lining up and could be turned away without casting ballots.Earlier this month, a suicide bomber killed 149 people at an election rally in the town of Mastung in Baluchistan province.
