Someone knew: Broad points finger over terror attack


www.smh.com.au

ICC match referee Chris Broad has suggested that someone had advance knowledge of the attack on Sri Lanka's cricket team in Lahore and held back the Pakistan players' bus to keep them out of danger.

The Briton says he has no evidence of a conspiracy but pointed out that the bus carrying the Pakistan team in Lahore departed on its journey to the Gaddafi Stadium five minutes after the Sri Lanka bus.

About a dozen gunmen attacked the Sri Lanka convoy, killing six policemen and a driver. Seven Sri Lanka players were injured.

Broad said that, although the teams travelled at different times in a previous Test match, the buses had travelled together on the first two days of the second Test in Lahore.

This is on top of a separate report from the Guardian, linked above, stating that:


a document emerged in the Pakistani media showing that local police had warned in writing of the possibility of the Sri Lankan team being targeted.


It's one thing to ignore a credible threat, but to take steps to protect your own citizens without taking the same steps for others is pretty worrying. As Broad states in the main article, there is no evidence for this claim, but it is pretty strange that the buses left together on the first two days, but the Sri Lankan players were delayed on this day.

Thoughts?

Crippling the competition?

Or, is it a third interested party with a gripe against Pakistan with the odds in their favor that due to the nature of trends the mystery will never be unravelled?


The paki's were spared-but will take blame. The sri lankans were injured. The cops were shot.

Who hates the police, the paki's, AND the Indians....
