India Escape Wagah Border Parade Exclusive Video
India and Pakistan have strengthened security at Wagah Border, where soldiers of the two countries collaborate in a widely popular retreat ceremony, after Islamabad’s warning of a suicide attack around Independence Day.
Pakistan’s top counter-terrorism agency has issued two alerts warning about possible terror attacks by two Taliban suicide bombers at Wagah.
Sources say in a meeting with the Border Security Force yesterday, officers of the Pakistan Rangers requested that the Wagah ceremony be advanced by 30 minutes between August 13 and 15. India has agreed, say the sources.
More armed personnel have been posted around the spot where hundreds on both sides of the border sit and watch a choreographed military show that ends with the symbolic lowering of flags.
