Ten killed, dozens hurt as twin blasts hit Lahore LAHORE: Ten people were killed and dozens others injured including women when two consecutive blasts ripped through Lahore’s commercial center on Monday, SSP Operations Shafiq Gujar said.
Nothing is known so far about the nature of the blasts which occurred at Lahore’s busy Moon Market in Allama Iqbal Town, Lahore.
According to Geo News sources, the two blasts occurred within 30 seconds of each other. Fire erupted in the market immediately after the blasts, engulfing a number of shops. Efforts are being made to bring the fire under control.
Rescue efforts are underway at the blast site, as the bodies and injured are being ferried in 1122 ambulances to nearby hospitals where emergency has been declared.
