KARACHI - The death toll from a blast at the offices of a political party in the Pakistani city of Karachi climbed to eight as Pakistanis voted in a landmark election, television stations reported.

About 35 people were wounded in the attack at an office of the Awami National Party (ANP). The al-Qaida-linked Taliban, who regard the general election as un-Islamic, have killed over 100 people since April, mostly through suicide bombings, which have prevented mostly secular candidates from campaigning.
