LAHORE, Pakistan – Two suicide bombers blew themselves up at a naval college on Tuesday, killing four people and underlining the security challenge facing the winners of Pakistan’s landmark elections.

Authorities detained eight people, all allegedly members of outlawed Sunni Muslim militant organizations, in separate raids hours after the bombing, said Chaudhry Masood Aziz, chief of anti-terrorism for the police department of in the eastern city of Lahore.

The men were picked up “in an attempt to find any clue to identify the bombers or people involved in the attack,” he said. None was a suspect, he said.

The bombers rode up to the gate of the college’s parking lot on a motorcycle. The passenger dismounted and destroyed the gate with a bomb, allowing his accomplice to ride inside and unleash a much more powerful blast, said police Chief Malik Iqbal.
