One killed in suicide blast in Islamabad bank

Islamabad, June 14(ANI): At least one person was killed and six others were injured when a suicide bomber blew himself up at a busy market in Islamabad on Monday.

Islamabad police chief Wajid Durrani said that the suicide bomber tried to enter a bank in the market, but was stopped by a security guard.

The bomber then detonated his explosives.

“The bomber walked into the bank and blew himself up when the security guard tried to search him,” The Daily Times quoted a witness, as saying.

No terror group has claimed responsibility for the bombing.

Earlier, the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) had pledged to carry out attacks in retaliation for the secret US military raid that killed Al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden in an army town not far from Islamabad on May 2. (ANI)
