Islamabad on high-alert for security after suicide bombing 

Canada Global (Web News) Following a suicide bombing last week in which a police officer and a taxi driver were killed, Islamabad Police reported on Monday that authorities had increased security in the Pakistani capital by deploying additional troops in sensitive areas and increasing patrolling operations throughout the city.

On Friday, a massive vehicle bomb exploded in a residential part of Islamabad, sparking worries that terrorists had taken up residence in one of the city’s safest neighbourhoods.

Since ending an unofficial ceasefire with the government of Pakistan in November, the Pakistani Taliban have increased their attacks on security personnel.

Police reported receiving intelligence tips about militants’ potential attempts to attack “high-value” locations in the city on Monday.

The spokesperson recommended citizens to cooperate with security officers at checkpoints and carry their identity cards while travelling, saying that police would avoid spreading “unnecessary panic” among the populace but would nevertheless be on high alert.

According to Jawad, more soldiers had been assigned to the city and patrolling had been improved.
