LAHORE (AP): An official says eight members of Sri Lanka’s national cricket team have been wounded after gunmen opened fire on their vehicle in eastern Pakistan.
Pakistan Cricket Board security official Nadeem Iqbal says the team members were hurt Tuesday near the stadium where they were due to arrive to play.
Sri Lankan team manager Brendon Kruppu confirmed the incident and said the team’s batsman, Kumar Sangakkara, was among the injured.
Security concerns have plagued Pakistan for years and some foreign sports teams have refused to play here.
