Pakistan lawmakers Thursday accused the government of a "serious security lapse" over the Sri Lankan cricket attack and cited reports that the authorities were warned of a possible attack. The foreign relations committee of the Senate, or upper house of parliament, expressed "deep sorrow and regrets" for Tuesday's attack, which left six police and two civilians dead, and seven Sri Lankan cricketers wounded. It "urged the government to investigate how such a serious lapse of security could occur when there were reports from within the government agencies that such an attack could be in the offing," the committee said in a statement. The statement followed international criticism over security arrangements in Lahore, where the attack raised questions about the effectiveness of Pakistan's war on Islamic militants. "This attack has inflicted a serious damage to the image of Pakistan and to the game of cricket in Pakistan," the foreign relations committee said.
