In Pakistan, there was a massive explosion

The injured were rushed to nearby Mian Munshi Hospital and Mayo Hospital, where an emergency was imposed. Meanwhile police have cordoned off the entire area.

The release said the State Department travel warning for Pakistan issued on May 22, 2017 remains active.

It is important to mention here that residents of the area have alleged that police were informed about the suspicious vehicle, which was parked for three days, but no action was taken.

The incident has raised security concerns ahead of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif's planned rally to Lahore from Islamabad via the GT Road tomorrow. Because of the impact of the explosion, the roof of a nearby house collapsed.

The bombing was claimed by the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) militant group, also known as the Pakistani Taliban, in a message sent to the media by its spokesman Muhammad Khurassani.
