Sri Lankan Cricket Team Attacked By Terrorist Gunmen; At Least 6 Players Injured
Terrorism Strikes The Sri Lanka Cricket Team In Pakistan
While the Sri Lankan cricket team was in Lahore, Pakistan, they were attacked by unidentified gunmen. 7 players were injured, an umpire and a coach were injured and 5 policemen were killed in the attack.
The attack was carried out my a group that was upset about Pakistan's relationship with Sri Lanka. They might have ties to Al-Qaida.
India and Australia had already backed out of matches scheduled in Pakistan, and Sri Lanka was the only team who agreed to play matches in the country. After this incident, future teams will likely wait quite a while before they ever think of playing in Pakistan again.
Best wishes to the players and their families, and hopefully Pakistan can once again host these events without the fear of attacks like this.
