Qazi Hussein Ahmed, leader of Jamat-e-Islami in Pakistan , condemned in a statement to Ikhwanweb the bombings that took place near the Supreme Court building in the eastern city of Lahore , causing dozens of casualties.
 
He said his group rejects such terrorist acts and all other acts of violence.
 
Pakistani police declared that a bombing, presumably a suicide attack, hit outside the court building, killing at least 23 and injuring about 58 others.
 
A top security official said that the death toll is expected to rise as a big number of the injured are critically wounded. He also said that 22 policemen standing outside the court building were among the dead.
 
Several sources said that bombing took place while hundreds of Pakistani lawyers were gathering in front of the court building to hold a protest march, while was the court"s board of judges were holding a meeting inside it .
 
After a while a second explosion took place near the scene of the first attack, but no details were declared about it or about the number of casualties.
 
These explosions take place as investigations are held to probe into the assassination of the former Prime Minister, Benazir Bhutto, who was killed in a double attack last December, 27th .
 
Later last week, the US administration has reportedly been seeing a plan for a military and intelligence expansion west of Pakistan , but Islamabad refused again to allow the US forces to hunt Al-Qaeda or Taliban militia on its soil.
This Pakistani rejection came following a report about these US plans published on the US New York Times Newspaper.
