Terrorist incidents in Pakistan in 1998

On the Tuesday morning, 10 March 1998, a bomb blast occurred here in a Lahore-bound train killing at least 10 and wounding more than 80 people. State authorities described the bomb as a timing device that was planted at an earlier stop. Although, no one claimed responsibility but Pakistan's government blamed the attack on its neighbor India.[2]
