Four blasts rock Pakistan town

Islamabad– At least 15 people were injured when four bomb blasts shook a town in Pakistan’s Sindh province Wednesday evening, the Dawn reported.

The blasts occurred in a colony in the province’s Sukkur district where residences of several government officers and the intelligence agency offices are located.

“I can confirm at least four blasts hit the area, but I can’t confirm at the moment if there were more,” provincial Information Minister Sharjeel Memon told a news channel.

Confirming that at least 15 people were injured the explosions, Memon said it was premature to give an exact number of casualties.

“It is a posh locality which also houses several government officials. I can’t say who was targeted or how the attackers entered the area,” he added. —IANS
