ISLAMABAD, July 7 (Xinhua) -- At least one person was killed and 37 others injured when a remote-controlled blast hit a food street in Pakistan's eastern city of Lahore on Saturday night, said hospital sources.

Local media quoted unidentified sources with Mayo Hospital in Lahore as saying that the hospital had received one body and 37 injured people following the blast. Five out of the injured were in critical conditions, said the sources.

  Some of the injured have also been shifted to Ganga Ram Hospital in the city, said local media. Local Urdu TV channel Dawn said that altogether 4 people were killed and 37 injured, out of which eight remained in critical condition.

   But there is no official confirmation about the figures reported by the channel.
   Naseem Sadiq, District Coordination Officer of Lahore, confirmed that it was a remote-controlled blast instead of a gas cylinder blast as reported by some local media.

   An estimated seven kg of explosives were used in the blast and a three-to-four-foot crater was left on the ground after the explosion, according to local media reports.  The blast took place at about 10:40 p.m. (local time) outside a restaurant on a food street in the Anarkali area of Lahore.

Many people were having dinner on the street when the bomb, reportedly planted under a chair outside a restaurant, went off, leaving a number of shops and vehicles damaged.One man was killed right on the spot, said an eyewitness. No group has claimed responsibility for the blast yet.
