“A large number of people were returning after watching Rangers flag ceremony at Wagah border when a suicide bomber blew himself up near one of the exit gates,” inspector general of police of Punjab Mushtaq Sukhera said. “Up to five kilograms of explosive material was used in the blast,” Sukhera specified. The suicide bomber was stopped at the gate of the parade ground at the border outside a restaurant, and detonated the bomb right when people gathered near the gate. Shops and nearby buildings were destroyed at the site of the blast. The Pakistani Taliban has claimed responsibility. Security and rescue personnel have rushed to the spot while the injured have been taken to hospital. Police said they were investigating, It seems there is evidence that at the moment of the blast security was a bit relaxed.
