No Singaporean Casualties in Pakistan Bomb

On Saturday, at least 60 people were killed when a bomb exploded at the Marriott Hotel, in Islamabad, Pakistan. The truck was detonated by a suicide bomber and there were at least 200 people that were wounded in the attack of the massive explosion. Fears of many of them could be buried under the debris. This hotel is a key metting place for many foreigners.

So far, there are no reports of any Singaporean casualties during this brazen bomb attack. The bomb had ruptured a gas pipeline and it then triggered an enormous blaze into flames. Some of the victims whom were caught trapped on the upper floors of the hotel, had leapt to their deaths trying to escape the fire.
