Salman, who was apparently the target of the attack, escaped unhurt. "The explosives were planted in a motorcycle parked near the restaurant and apparently the militants knew the President's son Salman would pass through on the road as he frequently goes to Hub industrial area where he has a farming business,"said an official.

Superintendent Police Investigation, Hub, Jam Mandokhel said Salman's convoy and district police officer Lasbela Bashir Brohi were passing by the area when the huge explosion occurred.

Thirteen people, including four policemen, also injured in the attack. "An ASI of the Karachi police and three other policemen in Salman's convoy sustained injuries," he said.
