Two small bombs have exploded in Pakistan's eastern city of Lahore, inuring at least 19 people.
The low-intensity blasts late on August 1 targeted a fruit market in the congested downtown area of the city where people had gathered to buy fruit for their meal after sundown during the holy month of Ramadan.
Officials said the bombs were detonated by a timing device.
They say one bomb was planted in a parking area outside the market while the other was placed under a pushcart.
