Bomb Blast in F-8
Nearly twenty minutes ago, a bomb blast ripped through the F-8 Markaz where preparations were underway for the Chief Justice of Pakistan, Justice Iftikhar Chaudhary to address the Bar Council leaving at least four people dead. The number of casualties is still unconfirmed but expected to increase. The Chief Justice had just left his residence and his entourage is now stopped near the Balochistan House.
Details are still coming in but one is forced to wonder whether this is another in a long chain of violent reactions that people suspected may come to fore in the aftermath of the Lal Masjid incidents last week. As is the usual these days, local television channel crews are descending on the sight of the blast, various hospitals etc to get more information.
