Pakistan on edge as eight killed in fresh Lahore bomb blastAt least eight people were killed and 28 injured after a bomb ripped through Pakistan’s Lahore on Thursday, officials said, the tenth attack in just under a fortnight pointing to a resurgence in Islamist violence. The blast, the second to hit the provincial capital this month, crumpled cars and sent panic rippling through the city after the wave of attacks across Pakistan killed more than 130 people. “My God, my God, I saw so many bodies,” said Imtiaz Ali, a barber in a Tony & Guy hair salon opposite the blast site in the posh Defence Housing Authority suburb of the city, replete with upscale boutiques and cafes.
