The people near the arch heard the sound of an explosion during the early hours of Wednesday and did not quite know what was responsible.

In the morning those who went to find out found that it was cordoned by the security forces and that people were not allowed to get close to the pavilion. Eventually it has been gathered that the explosion was a by-product of mechanical nature and had no security implications. Foroyaa has visited the sight and has been able to take pictures.
