LAHORE: Two small bombs went off at a market in Lahore late Wednesday, injuring 19 people, officials and police said. The low intensity blasts targeted a fruit market in the congested downtown area of the city where people had gathered to buy fruits for their meals during the holy month of Ramazan.“Two timed devices, one planted in the parking and the other one under a cart, exploded when people were buying fruits after breaking their fast in the evening,” administration official Noorul Amin Mengal told AFP.“We killed a senior Taliban commander in Multan today, so we were expecting such kind of response from the terrorists,” police chief Habibur Rehman said.
