Bomb Explosion rocks Lahore

Update/Correction: The explosion was, in fact, caused by a ‘desi’ bomb placed in a dust bin close to Milli Shoes in the main Liberty Market. Glass windows of shops just across the road were shattered as many nearby parked vehicles were damaged.

It was by sheer luck that there were no fatalities for this place is really congested with people in the evenings. Three injured were transferred to hospitals while the damaged cars were being removed by the police.

Some group or organization still has to claim the responsibility of this attack.

A parked car has exploded at Liberty Market Square; one of Lahore’s busiest areas. The incident happened almost at 7:00pm when evening traffic rush was on and this part of Lahore’s jam packed with businessmen and shopping goers.

At least three people are reported to be injured by the blast that occured near Hafiz Juice Corner. The police reached the area just after incident and has been searching for any other explosives.

Further deatils will be posted as soon as they are revealed to the public.

    Really sad that we have terrorists amongst us now taking revenge at innocent. Im sure it was someone from BLA. I hope they get Bughtified.

    Here is a picture of the mentioned shop though i am not 100% sure if it is the one mentioned exactly. Picture taken late 2004. There is even a hafiz like personality sitting on the stall which kind of hints that maybe it is the shop.
