Cricket ref says police fled scene

March 05, 2009|Times Wire Reports

A referee accused Pakistani police of abandoning the convoy carrying Sri Lanka's cricket team as a deadly militant ambush began this week, and video showed gunmen apparently escaping on an empty street as other attackers casually walked away.

The allegations by Chris Broad were denied by Pakistani cricket and government officials, who pointed out that six police officers died in the attack by up to 14 assailants.
