Seven injured in Lahore blast, cause still unclear


Shafaqna Pakistan:At least seven people were injured when an explosion ripped through a rickshaw in Lahore’s Chauburji area on Friday.

The blast occurred at around 11:15am and initial reports suggested it 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 the injured include the rickshaw driver and one of the five victims was in critical condition.

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