Gunmen shoot Sri Lanka cricketers

Posted by Alta on March 3, 2009

Gunmen have attacked a bus carrying the Sri Lankan cricket team on its way to play in the Pakistani city of Lahore.

At least five Pakistani policemen escorting the team bus were killed, while at least five cricketers, and their assistant coach, were injured.

Pakistani officials said about 12 gunmen were involved and grenades and rocket launchers have been recovered.

Officials said the incident bore the hallmarks of deadly attacks in Mumbai in India last November.

The Mumbai attacks were blamed on Pakistan-based Islamic militants.

The BBC’s Barbara Plett says the incident will come as a big blow to Pakistani cricket – already suffering from serious security concerns – and may put an end to international cricket in the country in the short term.

Pakistan had invited Sri Lanka to tour after India’s cricket team pulled out of a scheduled cricket tour on security grounds, following the Mumbai attacks.

Cricket died today in Pakistan 😦

I always used to watch test cricket in Pakistan,even if i had to go to Multan when Karachi was not getting the matches,this time i didnt go to the national stadium because at the back of my mind i had something like this might happen.

RIP Pak Cricket
