Islamabad, Oct 25: Pakistan was shaken at the very beginning of the week as a major bomb blast killed at least six people and more than a dozen people were injured in the country's central province of Punjab on Monday, Oct 25.

According the police sources, the bomb was planted in a milk container tied to a motorbike.

"Two attackers parked the motorbike outside the rear gate of the shrine and fled. Five minuets later the bomb exploded. It could have been a remote-controlled bombing," informed the official.

The blast occurred near shrine of Baba Farid Shaker Ganj, which was evacuated and closed for visitors following the blast.
