Pakistan has been battling terror groups for years. And as the elections get closer, there is a possibility of further carnage.  

On Sunday, a candidate from the party of Pakistan prime ministerial hopeful and former cricket star Imran Khan was killed in a suicide attack, claimed by the Taliban.

A decision by a top court prevents authorities from providing personal security to candidates, even if they are on the hit lists of the Taliban and Daesh.
