More proofs of internal involvement in Lahore incident

Lahore commissioner Khusro Pervez said the gunmen should have been battled by “back up police support which didn’t arrive.”

Referee Chris Broad was traveling in a van in the same convoy as the Sri Lankan team bus when the attackers opened fire with automatic weapons, grenades and at least one rocket launcher, killing his driver and critically wounding a fellow official.
“There was not a sign of a policeman anywhere,” Broad said Wednesday after flying back to Britain. “They had clearly left the scene and left us to be sitting ducks.”

The surveillance video, broadcast on Pakistani television, showed several attackers apparently escaping down a side street on motorcycles while brandishing weapons. Three were shown walking along the middle of the street, apparently in no fear that they were being chased by police.
