LAHORE, Pakistan - A dozen masked gunmen armed with rifles and rocket launchers attacked the Sri Lankan cricket team as it traveled to a match in Pakistan on Tuesday, wounding several players and killing five police officers, officials said.

The assailants ambushed the team's convoy at a traffic circle close to the main sports stadium in the eastern city of Lahore ahead of a match against Pakistan's national team, triggering a 15-minute gunbattle with police guarding the vehicles.

None of the attackers were killed or captured at the scene, said city police chief Haji Habibur Rehman said. Authorities did not speculate on the identities of the attackers or their motives

It seems to me that all we hear about lately is about things going on in Pakistan.

Now this unfortunate incident. They're going for the high profile targets now, as the article said. What seems most shocking to me is that every one of the gunmen got away while wounding a bunch of cops.

Why now?? Why them??

Tuesday's attack came three months after the Mumbai terror attacks, which were allegedly carried out by Pakistan militants.

With Afghanistan right next door it begs the question of is the US going in the to police yet another "hot spot" on the globe?
