Terror makes first marks on Pakistan ballot

The Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) has called off an April 4 rally that was intended to kick-start its election campaign after the Pakistani Taliban threatened to attack its public meetings.

The PPP had scheduled the rally for April 4, the anniversary of the death of its founder and former prime Minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, in Garhi Khuda Bakhsh village, Sindh province, as the first rally for the upcoming May 11 general election, but on Tuesday switched to a hall and closed the meeting to all but representatives of state media.
