Blast injures 10 in Pakistan

Islamabad, Nov 29, IRNA -- At least ten people were injured when an explosion ripped through a vehicle in Pakistan's Lahore on Friday, local media reported.

According to the initial reports the blast which occurred at Chauburji was a cylinder explosion.

However, there has been no confirmation on the cause but a spokesperson for the Punjab Counter-Terrorism Department said a “terrorism angle” could not be ruled out at this stage.

The official said many injured were in critical conditions.

Other police officials said it could be a remote-controlled explosion as a suspicious device was found near the blast site.

In May 2019 a suicide bomb attack outside Data Darbar Shrine in Lahore city killed at least 13 people, including five policemen, and injured at least 24.
