2 Bomb Blast at Main Gate & Aslam Market Gate in POFs Wah Cantt


Wahcantt.com…Aug 21…. Two suicide bombers blew themselves up outside Pakistan Ordinance Factory Thursday, killing more than 50 people. The attackers struck almost simultaneously as a crowd of workers was streaming out of the POFs complex in the northern town of Wah. The Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack and warned of further blasts if army operations in the tribal areas are not stopped. “Two men apparently blew themselves up outside the factory during a shift change. The bombers were on foot and they exploded themselves less than a minute apart,” local police chief Nasir Durrani told. He said more than 50 people were confirmed dead and around 70 wounded. A fleet of around 25 ambulances was needed to ferry the wounded to hospital. “The blast took place as staff were leaving after finishing their day’s duty and it was very crowded,” a rescue official told. The charred body of a man, believed to be one of the bombers, lay on the road outside one of the gates. Dozens of troops, police and military rescue workers in orange jackets milled around the scene.


A spokesman for Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan claimed responsibility. “Our bombers carried out today’s attack. It is in reaction to military operations in Swat and Bajaur,” spokesman Maulvi Omar told AFP by telephone. “Similar attacks will be carried out in other cities of Pakistan including Lahore, Islamabad and Rawalpindi,” he said. The Pakistani Ordnance Factories at Wah is a cluster of about 20 industrial units producing artillery, tank and anti-aircraft ammunition for the Pakistani armed forces. It employs around 25,000 to 30,000 workers. This blast leave a big question mark on Paksitan’s security agencies and current government.
