We heard and learned about the news also. But really it cannot be determined who the culprits are. But surely these are some people who wants to deestablize the government or want some actions so that other done actions be not remembered. Sorry for those who were affected, but bombings in all places occurred. We just pray that such kind of happenings be stopped.

It is really sad to hear that the bombing is still going on in your country. I hope that the authority would buck up and be more able to handle such situations. I feel sorry for those innocent people that got hurt and killed and others who have to live in fear day and night due to that. Take care my friend!

Hi shakeroo, Thanks for the response and care. According to authorities the blast was the result of misunderstanding between politicians. Nothing to be feared of...
