Several members of the Sri Lankan cricket team have been injured after gunmen fired on a convoy carrying cricketers in Pakistani city of Lahore.
The convoy was carrying Pakistani and Sri Lankan cricketers to a ground, which is hosting a Test match between the two sides.
Reports quoting Sri Lankan authorities say at least two Sri Lankan players were seriously injured in the incident.
Unconfirmed reports say some policemen had been killed by the shooting.
The incident happened on the road from the teams’ hotel to the Gadaffi stadium, where a Test match is being held.
“It appears that our team bus was targeted on the way to the match. It appears that four of our cricketers have been injured and taken to the hospital,” a Sri Lankan cricket official told an Indian TV channel from Colombo.
