 Updated at: 1831 PST,  Friday, March 06, 2009
Foreign hand not ruled out in Lahore attack: Rehman Malik LAHORE: Interior Ministry chief Rehman Malik said Friday he could not rule out foreign involvement in the Sri Lankan cricket attack.

Six Pakistani police and two civilians were killed on Tuesday when gunmen ambushed the team en route to a Test match in Lahore. Seven Sri Lankan cricketers and a coach were among 19 people wounded.

"I cannot rule out (involvement of a) foreign hand in the incident," Rehman Malik told reporters in Lahore.

He was asked if Sri Lanka's Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) could be linked to the attacks.

"We have not found any leads suggesting the involvement of any religious elements," Malik said. But he refused to divulge information about how the probe was progressing.
