Explosion heard in public park in Pakistani garrison city

An explosion was heard in a public park in Rawalpindi, a garrison city near the Pakistani capital late Wednesday. There was no word immediate word on the cause or if anyone was hurt.
Police and other security forces have cordoned off the Ayub Park, site of the reported blast, and traffic on road hugging the park has been diverted, a senior army official said on condition of anonymity because he lacked the authority to make formal media comments.
The park is located about less than a kilometer (half a mile) from the residence of President Gen. Pervez Musharraf. Other senior army officers are housed in the area.
