The Economic Times - - Around The World -

La­hore: At least eight per­sons were killed and 35 oth­ers in­jured on Thurs­day in a pow­er­ful bomb blast in a posh de­fence lo­cal­ity here, the sec­ond such in­ci­dent in the city this month as Pak­istan wit­nesses a surge in ter­ror at­tacks. Panic gripped the De­fence Hous­ing Au­thor­ity a lit­tle be­fore noon when the loud ex­plo­sion res­onated across Z-Block. “Eight per­sons have been killed and 35 suf­fered in­juries,” of­fi­cials said. The na­ture of the blast is yet to be de­ter­mined and bomb dis­posal squad and foren­sic ex­pert are col­lect­ing ev­i­dences from the spot. PTI
