LAHORE:


Intelligence reports had warned police and other security agencies that terrorist outfits, including the banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), were planning to carry out such attacks on army, navy and air force installations.


The report had suggested that the TTP was very likely to mount attacks like the one they carried out, targeting a navy bus on April 26 in Karachi.

The federal interior ministry had issued an alert, warning police and other law-enforcement agencies to beef up security across the country.

Sources said that the despite ample intelligence warnings and a security alert issued by the interior ministry, Sunday’s attack had occurred because of a security breach.
