Japanese journalist injured in Islamabad blast

A Japanese journalist suffered injuries Saturday in a bomb attack on an Italian restaurant in central Islamabad, Pakistan’s capital, Japanese media reports.

The 34-year-old journalist sustained injuries in his face and was taken to Islamabad’s Shifa International Hospital on Sunday, where he received stitches to his lips.

“He is in a stable condition,” a doctor at the hospital quoted by Kyodo News said, but it was still unclear whether the journalist would undergo treatment for injuries sustained to his right eye. He also suffered a broken jaw.

The blast killed at least one foreigner and injured at least 10, the Islamabad police chief told ASP on Saturday.
