Masked gunmen have attacked the Sri Lankan Cricket team bus in Pakistan, shots were fired and a grenade thrown.

Kumar Sangakkara, Ajantha Mendis, Thilan Samaraweera and Tharanga Paranavithana have received minor injuries.

This was the first tour by an International Cricket team afted the Champions Trophy, and Series with india and Austrailia were cancelled.

Seems like a pre-planned assault, car bombs in the vicinity have also been defused.

Details on the Guardian website, and Cricinfo blogs.

"The bus came under attack as we were driving to the stadium, the gunmen targeted the wheels of the bus first and then the bus, we all dived to the floor to take cover. About five players have been injured and also Paul Farbrace [a member of the support staff], but most of the injuries appear to be minor at this stage and caused by debris."
