blast rocks upscale market in Pakistani city of Lahore
« on: February 24, 2017, 12:51:15 AM »


An explosion at a shopping area in Lahore has killed at least eight and wounded dozens in the country's latest surge of violence. The blast came a day after the military announced the start of an anti-terror operation.

At least 20 people were wounded and another eight killed when a blast ripped through a building in a market in Pakistan's eastern city of Lahore on Thursday, officials said.
The explosion was caused by a timed device that was placed in a building that was under construction, Punjab police told television channel Geo News. Police further told the channel that between 8-10 kilograms (about 20 pounds) of explosives were used.
"It was a bomb attack," Nayab Haider, a spokesman for the provincial Punjab police told news agency AFP.
The blast took place in the particularly upscale Defense Housing Authority suburb of the city, home to boutiques, coffee shops, banks and an academy for the international hair salon Toni & Guy.
Security forces are not allowing people to enter or leave the market as they believe the bomber is still alive, authorities said.
