Dr Humayun Taimoor to lead the team
A team of Pakistani forensic experts will leave for Sri Lanka to help Colombo authorities identify the victims of Easter explosions.
At least 290 people were killed in a series of bomb blasts that tore through churches and luxury hotels in Sri Lanka on Sunday, in the worst violence to hit the island since its devastating civil war ended a decade ago.
Eight apparently co-ordinated explosions targeted Easter worshippers and high end hotels popular with international guests.
The University of Health Sciences had offered to help Sri Lankan authorities in identifying the victims. Sri Lanka accepted the offer and a team, led by Dr Humayun Taimoor, will leave for Colombo to assist the officials.
