A senior Pakistani official was killed along with at least 14 others Sunday in a suicide bombing at his office, according to police and rescue officials.

Shuja Khanzada, who helped lead counter-terrorism operations as home minister in Punjab, Pakistan’s largest province, was killed barely two weeks after police shot and killed one of the country’s most feared militant leaders. Authorities said the bombing was a retaliatory strike, although no militant group immediately claimed responsibility.
