LAHORE - Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif has strongly condemned the Charing Cross blast that left over 16 dead and several others injured.

In a statement issued by the PM House on Monday, the prime minister has directed the Punjab government to reach the site and provide all possible assistance to the injured.
