Pakistan : Over 12 injured in a blast at football ground in Karachi
As many as 14 people were injured in an explosion during a football match on Tuesday in a town located in Pakistan’s Balochistan. “Fortunately, no football player was injured in the blast,” the officer said.
The police said that an initial probe shows that a remote controlled device was used to detonate the explosive that was hidden where spectators were seated.
Officials said that soon after receiving information about the blast policemen rushed to the scene of the blast along with personnel of other security forces and shifted the injured to the district hospital.
Separatists and militants have been carrying out a number of terror attacks in Balochistan and usually attack security forces, including police, workers and labourers from outside the province who work on the multi-billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor in different parts of the province.
