Flag-lowering ceremony at Wagah suspended for 3 days

The ceremony is held every evening, attended by huge crowds on both sides at Wagah  to see the display of military pageantry that accompanies the formal closing of the border post.

Continuing for last 55 years, members of Pakistan Rangers and India’s Border Security Force march in goose steps and lower their countries’ flags.

The suspension of the ceremony for three days comes after at least 59 people were killed and more than hundred were injured when a suicide bomber detonated himself at a checkpoint near Wagah border crossing just after the spectators were returning back after watching the ceremony.
