At least 25 people were injured after a blast hit a market area in Pakistan's Rawalpindi city, police said. According to city police officer Mohammad AhsanYounas, an improvised explosive device (IED) was planted under a cart, which exploded on Sunday in the busy GanjMandi market near a police station, roughly 2 km away from the military headquarters, reports Xinhua news agency. A rescue official told the media that they shifted 22 injured, some in critical condition, to a local hospital while discharged three others after providing them first aid at the blast site. No group or individual has claimed responsibility for the attack yet. Younas further said that it was the second attack near a police station during the last 10 days in the city.
