  • Description

    A bomb outside the main Lusaka post office Tuesday (11 September) killed an Indian couple and injured their 12-year-old son.

    Mr. Ochimanla Vyas, an Asian employed in the Zambian Government's Cultural Services Department, and his wife were killed when Mr. Vyas apparently opened a parcel bomb he had just received at the post office. The explosion completely wrecked their car. Pathik Vyas, the couple's 12-year-old son received leg burns in the explosion, but was reportedly not in danger.

    The bomb blast was the latest in a series which has shaken the Zambian capital recently.

    An explosive device in a parcel delivered to the Chinese Embassy on August 18 killed the wife of a senior Chinese diplomat, according to diplomatic sources. Two weeks earlier a secretary was killed when a similar device shattered a government office.
