A roadside bomb exploded near a car carrying a judge in eastern Pakistan on Friday, seriously wounding him and killing at least two people, police and doctors said. Mian Bashir Bhatti, a judge of the anti-terrorist court who often hears cases against militants and suspected terrorists, was traveling to his court in central Multan when the bomb went off, said Shaukat Ali, the city police chief. At least eight people were wounded in the blast, Ali said. Dr Fahim Javed at the state Nishtar Hospital said Bhatti was in a critical condition, and identified one of the dead as Mohammed Iqbal, Bhatti's driver.
