At least 25 people have been killed in an explosion in Pakistan's Balochistan province which appears to have targeted a top lawmaker.

The blast hit a convoy carrying Senator Abdul Ghafoor Haideri, the deputy chairman of Pakistan's upper house, as it left a religious school in Mastung.

More than 40 other people were injured in the blast.

The so-called Islamic State militant group said it carried out the attack using a suicide bomber.

Haideri was on his way back to Quetta after presenting graduation certificates to students at the religious school when the blast happened.

He had sustained minor injuries.
