In wake of the tense situation in Islamabad, Pakistan Army called off the Defence Day ceremony scheduled to be held in General Headquarters, Rawalpindi on Sunday.

Sources said that federal ministers and all three services chiefs were due to attend the event scheduled in connection with Defence Day (September 6).

However, the ceremony was called off following the violence that gripped the federal capital late Saturday and continued early Sunday, killing at least three people and injuring more than 400.
