Senior Pakistan People's Party leader Makhdoom Amin Fahim on Sunday escaped unhurt in an apparent bid on his life at a party rally in Sindh Province.

Media reports said that some persons opened fire at Fahim, the vice chairman of the PPP, while he was addressing the rally at Mithi in Sindh province.

The PPP said Fahim is safe and would address a press conference shortly. The bid on Fahim's life sparked tension in Sindh province, the reports said.

Incidentally, PPP chief Benazir Bhutto was assassinated during an election rally in Rawalpindi on December 27 last year.
