ISLAMABAD(LAHORE), 13 July: At least 29 people sustained serious injuries in the pile-up of three vehicles in Jhelum on Tuesday.

According to details, the incident took place near Lilla Interchange in Jheulm, where three vehicles collided with each other, said Rescue 1122.

The incident occurred when a Mazda loaded with labourer collided with a parked vehicle and a passenger bus. The injured were moved to a nearby hospital.

In a separate incident, at least four people were killed while 25 others sustained wounds in a pile-up involving five vehicles in Okara.

According to rescue sources, the deceased and injured were shifted to a nearby hospital for medical attention. The pile-up occurred owing to poor visibility caused by thick fog, a rescue official had said.

At least four people have been killed and nine others wounded after a suicide car bombing targeted a convoy carrying Mogadishu’s police chief, according to Somali officials. Farhan Mohamud, the chief police commissioner, survived Saturday’s blast, police spokesman Sadiq Aden Ali said.“We confirm that four people, including pedestrians, died in the attack and nine others injured. Al-Shabab militants’ intention was to kill the commander, but he survived,” Sadiq said. Al-Shabab, an al-Qaeda-linked armed group fighting to overthrow Somalia’s internationally recognised government, claimed responsibility for the attack.

The group said they killed four police officers in the attack and injured five others. They claimed all of them were the police chief’s bodyguards. Al-Shabab, which used to control parts of Mogadishu, was pushed out of the seaside capital in 2011 by Somali troops backed by African Union soldiers.
